Overview Expand

62 Buckingham Gate is a landmark mixed-use development in the heart of London’s Victoria, one of the first significant developments in the area for many years. 

The 13-storey prism-like structure was conceived by architects Pelli Clarke Pelli and with architectural details developed by Swanke Hayden & Connell. The project saw Prater working together with sister company Lindner Facades to deliver a scope of works that included structural waterproofing and a green roof solution.

We were selected to supply the structural waterproofing and green roof finishes for the project, including granite paving, bio diverse and sedum roofing, while Lindner Facades provided the bespoke unitised curtain wall system, which is the key feature of the building.

This involves rhomboidal bronze anodized elements in 11 ‘facets’ of variously inward inclined, outward inclined and vertical areas of cladding. 

Externally, the building incorporates 800 sqm of bolted glass canopy using multi-coloured artist-designed screen-printed glass panels, stainless steel ‘spider’ glass retaining brackets supported on 250 x 50mm steel rafters & columns.
