The Bishopsgate Project

Europlanters are proud to have been involved in one of Spitalfields most environmental and socially responsible workplaces.

DUO, 280 Bishopsgate in Central London is a 13 storey structure in a prominent position on the East side of Bishopsgate. A former Royal Bank of Scotland, now refurbished, with one of the main features of the building being its dual reception which spans the whole length of the ground floor, linking the plentiful urban green spaces which connect Bishops Square with the neighbouring Spitalfields market.

Ensuring consideration to sustainable construction, Accoya timber was specified and used for all of the benches and seating. Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) was used for all the planters and Frosts Landscape Construction planted up with screening, beautiful foliage and specimen multi stem trees.  

Europlanters supplied over 100m of planters in metallic paint RAL 1035 in a matt finish along with 30m of seating and two L’shaped storage benches with removable lids. 
The project also Included approximately 47 square meters of lawn edged with 27m of 4mm thick, grade 316, stainless steel at 400mm high, each section measured to line up exactly with the paving with the L’shaped storage bench seating on two corners.

We were delighted to be involved in a project that’s achieved a BREEAM excellent rating and gold accreditation from the International WELL Building Institute.

The Galliford Try constuction group secured the contract to refurbish the building owned by Arax Properties, and Europlanters worked with Ahmarra and Townshend Landscape Architects to create an expansive communal terrace on the 13th floor.
