Ashford won the competitive tender to carry the re-commissioning of the services within Atlas House, No.1 King Street in the City of London

Faber Maunsell commissioned Ashford Environmental Services Limited to carry out a full mechanical & electrical validation survey of 169 Union Street, a 3000 square metre five storey building in London.

Ashford Environmental Services Limited was awarded the contract on a competitive tender basis by consulting engineers, The Anslow Partnership.

Wates Construction are currently working on a complex project in Holborn, London. Project 2020 comprises a two stage design and build redevelopment of three existing buildings to create a 14,000 sqm headquarters for client Anglo American and De Beers. 

Located in the Hatton Garden Conservation Area, the site is predominantly occupied by the former De Beers headquarters, the majority of which was constructed in the 1970s, with a later extension added in the 2000s. The site is also home to St Andrew’s House, a Grade-II listed building recognised as one of the oldest surviving examples of public housing in the UK.

The planning permission allows for 40,000 sq ft of additional floorspace through rear and rooftop extensions. It was accepted that the setting of the listed building would be enhanced through the built form aligning with the historic building line, creating a new ‘street’.

Ashford provide management services on the project inclusive of Water Treatment consultation, commissioning validation & witnessing for both mechanical & electrical systems.

Bloomberg London
 
The building was designed by architects Foster and Partners with structural engineer AKT II, and constructed by Sir Robert McAlpine at a cost of £1bn.nnIt consists of two buildings, divided by a covered arcade. The buildings are linked by bridges. The arcade contains several restaurants, and reinstates part of Watling Street, an ancient Roman road.

The building is clad in 9,600 tonnes of Derbyshire sandstone with bronze ventilation fins. Inside, the floors are linked by custom glass lifts and a 210 m helical bronze "ramp", which dominates the interior of the building. The cores of the building are on the outside, to create a single open-plan space inside. Express lifts take visitors from the lobby, a self-supporting "vortex" of three curved timber shells, to the double-height pantry on the sixth floor, with view of St Paul's Cathedral. Then visitors must take a second lift or use the ramp to access other floors. The building houses 4,000 staff, with room to expand. All desks are electric adjustable-height.

In July 2018, the RIBA announced that Bloomberg London had made the shortlist of the 2018 Stirling Prize along with Bushey Cemetery, Chadwick Hall, the new build at Tate St Ives, Storey's Field Centre and Eddington Nursery and the Sultan Nazrin Shah Centre. In October 2018 it was announced as the overall winner.

The building is noted for its energy-efficiency. It achieved a 98.5% score against the BREEAM sustainability assessment method, the highest design-stage score ever achieved by any major office development. Rainwater is collected from the roof to supply the vacuum toilets. The office floors are illuminated with 500,000 LEDs. The ceilings are custom aluminium "petals", inspired by the pressed metal ceilings of New York, which act as light diffusers, cooling elements and acoustic attenuation.

Ashford provided management services on the project, Inclusive of Water Treatment, commissioning validation & witnessing.
