Specialist property developer and investor Kajima Properties' new development at 77 Coleman Street in the City of London is a luxury multi-tenant office set over seven floors. BNP Pariahs acts as the managing agent, while the redevelopment was designed by architect Buckley Gray Yeoman.
The prominent London location is a minute's walk from Moor gate Tube station and the Elizabeth Line.
The redevelopment included installing elegant external facades as well as creating floors of new office space, and 16,000 sq ft of retail, leisure and restaurant space.
The site offers exceptional internet reliability and speed for tenants, and is one of just 22 buildings in the UK to achieve a platinum connectivity rating by WiredScore, the Mayor of London's digital connectivity rating scheme.
BNP Paribas and Kajima Properties wanted a seamless and highly efficient access system to allow bona fide users and visitors easy access through reception and lifts to their desired location.
This needed to be underpinned – but not impinged by - a robust security management system including CCTV to keep people and the building safe.
They wanted to keep any waiting time in reception to an absolute minimum to avoid crowding, including good access for disabled users, and for all entry to be touchless.
Tenants and reception staff would need an efficient, secure and easy to use system for managing visitors. While an entry phone and door automation would be required for anyone arriving out-of-hours, or at the rear of the property, such as for deliveries and trades people with equipment.
Finally, a key part of the brief was for any installed equipment, such as turnstiles and lifts, to be in keeping with the sophisticated, minimal look and feel of the building.
