Cofely delivers technical services for The Shard
A 5-year contract to deliver technical services to The Shard in London, the tallest building in western Europe, has been awarded to Cofely. This 95-storey, 110 000 m2 building contains retail, world-class offices, international restaurants, 5-star hotel, an exclusive collection of residences and London’s highest viewing galleries. Cofely will work closely with London Bridge Quarter Estates Management team during an initial mobilisation phase in preparation for the first tenants in 2013.
As well as optimising the performance of the 1.5 MW CHP plant, Cofely will play a key role in ensuring the buildings maintain their exceptional environmental performance and low carbon footprint and will pro-actively evaluate energy performance throughout the London Bridge Quarter Development. The company will liaise with LBQ Estate management and tenants in delivering energy-efficiency innovations wherever possible with a view to achieving continuous improvement.
Colin Hales, CEO with Cofely UK, said, ‘We now maintain the world’s tallest building in the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, western Europe’s tallest at The Shard and also the iconic 30 St Mary’s Axe (The Gherkin) in the City of London.’
