Devonshire Row, 150 Bishopsgate, London
Devonshire Row, 150 Bishopsgate is a residential and commercial redevelopment in Central London. The existing façade was retained amongst the area to be redeveloped. The project consisted of 97,718 square metres of floor space and includes a site area of 5,000 square metres, with 284 residential units, car parking, leisure and entertainment facilities as well as business ventures. KEIM’s remit was to coat the existing Bath stone façade to match and blend seamlessly with the new Portland Stone façade.
To deal with the potential for the new stone to age differently, KEIM Fixativ was applied to preserve and prevent the surface from getting soiled.
The project has earned a 3 star rating from Sustainable Homes and an Excellent rating from BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), which is the most widely, globally used certification standard.
The code for Sustainable Homes measures the sustainability of a new home against nine categories (energy/CO₂, water, materials, surface water run off, waste, pollution, health and well being, management and ecology), to rate the ‘whole home’ as a complete package.
