Quay House, Canary Wharf

Location: Canary Wharf, London

Client: Rockwell Properties

Architect: Simpson Haugh

Services: MEP, VT and Energy & Sustainability Services

 

A planning application has been submitted for the Quay House development, which will consist of a new, 40-storey building with two independently operating functions, separated by a party wall. The development will be hotel-led with 400 guest rooms, with an additional 279 serviced apartments. Other proposed facilities include a gym, restaurant and café, whilst the area underneath the tower’s podium, will be redeveloped into a landscaped public area.

 

PSH was appointed as MEP consulting engineers and have developed the Energy Strategy, Sustainability Statement and BREEAM Pre-assessment for the scheme.

 

To achieve the 45% carbon emissions reduction required by the Tower Hamlets local authority, PSH has developed an energy strategy that features an ambient loop heating and cooling system fed by reverse cycle heat pump chillers. The system will incorporate water source and air source heat pumps on the return circuit, to recover heat rejected by the building into the domestic hot water generation system. The scheme will also target a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.
