Pioneering sustainability in the heart of the city.

Designed by internationally-renowned Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel, with Sidell Gibson as delivery architects, the award-winning One New Change is one of our most celebrated projects. It’s host to high-grade offices, plus luxury retail space made up of restaurants and a shopping centre. Both of these elements were substantial projects in their own right.

Sitting in the heart of the City of London, the scheme also has a public roof terrace that provides spectacular views of St Paul’s Cathedral.

Renewable design.

Completed in 2010, it was the largest scheme in the capital at the time – some 600,000 square foot of usable space, housed within a five-sided glass box. Constrained by St Paul’s heights, as well as the GLA’S sustainability strategy, we responded by creating the largest ground source energy system in Europe at the time. This pioneering renewable system combines open-loop bore holes and closed-loop energy piles, delivering at peak 2.4 MW of renewable energy.

Vision of quality.

To deliver a scheme with the size and complexity of One New Change, it was necessary to champion teamwork. Working with the client, architects, designers, and contractors to realise the ambitious aims, our teams of experts rose to every challenge, engaged fully with the client’s vision, and gave extra when need to deliver a such a significant project.
