Briggs & Forrester Engineering Services secure MEP package on One Exchange Square

Briggs & Forrester Engineering Services have been appointed by Multiplex to complete the full mechanical, electrical and public health package of One Exchange Square, previously known as 175 Bishopsgate.

The revamp of the 30-year-old building designed by Fletcher Priest Architects, spans across 13 storeys featuring 39,000m2 of office space plus 2,000m2 of retail. It will feature landscaped terraces on every floor, a striking feature reception and an amenity lounge.

The building will retain 90% of the existing structure resulting in 50% lower embodied carbon than a typical new build. The scheme will be 100% electric and net zero carbon in operation, using intelligent façade design and mechanical services twinned with building management systems to manage operational energy use. It is targeting BREEAM Outstanding, NABERS 5* and Well Platinum accreditations and also benefits from outstanding transport connections.

MEP works scheduled for completion at the beginning of 2026.
