Cofely get the point

22 October 2012

Cofely has been awarded a five year contract to deliver technical services to The Shard – the tallest building in Western Europe.

The Shard is the newest landmark addition to London’s skyline standing at 310 metres high (1,016 ft) and is at the heart of London Bridge Quarter, a new 2 million sq ft commercial district on London’s Southbank.

The Shard is a 95 storey, 110,000 sq metre (1,200,000 sq ft) vertical city containing retail, offices, international restaurants, 5 star hotel, an exclusive collection of residences and the capital’s highest viewing galleries. Cofely will be working closely with London Bridge Quarter (LBQ) Estates Management team during an initial mobilisation phase, ready for the first tenants being operational in 2013.

As well as optimising the performance of the 1.5MW combined heat and power plant at The Shard, Cofely will play a role in ensuring the buildings maintain their environmental performance and low carbon footprint and will pro-actively evaluate energy performance throughout the London Bridge Quarter Development (LBQ). The company will liaise directly with LBQ Estate management and tenants in delivering energy efficiency innovations wherever possible with a view to achieving continuous improvement.

Cofely UK CEO Colin Hale commented: “We appreciate Sellar and LBQ Estates giving us the opportunity to provide them with full technical support on this highly complex building in their London Bridge Quarter development. We now maintain the world’s tallest building in the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, Western Europe’s tallest at The Shard and also the iconic 30 St. Mary’s Axe (The Gherkin) in the City. We can put this unrivalled experience to work for the benefit of our demanding and valued customers in all of these locations.”
