Wood Wharf Commercial (D1, D2 & B3)

Canary Wharf, London

Designed by Allies & Morrison, these ‘dissimilar pair’ of buildings will form part of the first phase of commercial buildings that will be developed within Wood Wharf.

Their design, which has been broadly based upon ‘a grittier and more urban feel’, will purposefully target more fledgling start-up companies within the technology, media and telecommunications industries.

The building comprises multiple levels of high quality office space, a pairing of commercial reception facilities and retail space at ground floor, and a communal basement shared with other buildings within the Phase 1 development programme. 

We were appointed by Canary Wharf Contractors to design electronic security systems for the commercial scheme. In addition, we provided strategic blast mitigation advice for the mail scanning and post room facilities.

The electronic security systems will be based around a multi-technology Automated Access Control System (AACS), IP Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) and Voice Intercom Systems (VCOM).

We made sure that that all security measures, both physical and electronic, were seamlessly coordinated with the Architect and other members of the Professional Team. This helped to ensure that both the architectural vision and underlying operational requirements and principles were met.
