This efficient and flexible building for Reuters combines a data and technical centre.

The RIBA award-winning building was unusual at the time because of its generous floor to ceiling heights, which allowed the building to accommodate a variety of technical and office uses, including on-floor generators, data cabling and additional ventilation required to cool the large amount of equipment used by Reuters.

When developed nearly 30 years ago, the building was alone. Now it is surrounded by a mix of uses a part of London’s growth eastwards.
