GLOBAL SWITCH, LONDON

An office and Communications centre in the London Docklands.  The scheme required a solution to protect the external facade of this high-security building. This was achieved by creating solid granite planters in a defensible but highly stylized way around its boundaries. Box hedging, bamboo ground-cover and Liquid amber trees are incorporated into the planters. 

Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team and acting in a co-ordination role for the whole of the external works which involved some technical issues such as fibre-optic routing and innovative gas venting solutions. Producing all work from concept scheme to production information, project management, Client team liaison, and overseeing the implementation of the works.
