The renewal of visitor facilities for one of the City of London’s main tourist attractions was driven by a desire to create more attractive and better functioning facilities for staff and visitors alike. An important part of the solution is improved winter energy efficiency. We also devised a unique summer cooling system that utilises a reservoir of naturally cooled air found in the bascules of the bridge that contain a counter-balance system for elevating the bridge. The environmental strategy reflects a genuine desire of the City of London to address issues of sustainability for the benefit of the global environment.
