In what is considered a world-first innovation, rather than demolish and rebuild the 50 Bridge Street skyscraper, it is being upcycled, retaining 60% of the existing core structure. The tower is expanded, improved and recycled to create the new state-of-the-art Quay Quarter Tower with its new fa├žade and building services, and doubled floor plate size.
The design optimises the embodied energy and resources inherent in the existing building and results in a saving 12,079 metric tons of embodied carbon in addition to reduced construction time and environmental impact.
