From the Gherkin to the London Eye…
B&ES members have worked on some of the most iconic buildings across the UK. From 1904 members have been ensuring that standards have been maintained in projects across the country. Over the coming months we’d like to showcase as many of these exciting and innovative projects as possible from the smallest to the biggest across the country.
This showcase area will be constantly updated with new member achievements, so to begin this Jubilee weekend here are a sample from London…
Skanska Rashleigh Weatherfoil Ltd installed mechanical services at the iconic Gherkin. A member of the Association for 65 years, they joined in 1947 and installed mechanical services for Swiss Re Tower at Thirty St Mary Axe, also known as the Gherkin.
NG Bailey has completed work on a £2.5m contract with Network Rail to provide specialist mechanical and electrical services to Paddington Station. The project consisted of a wide range of installation services including lighting, fire alarms, mains distribution and air conditioning.

Lighting and mechanical controls were also installed by the company, along with lightning protection.
T Clarke has been a member since 1999, and has recently been awarded the electrical contract for 20 Fenchurch Street, also known as the ‘Walkie Talkie’. This now means that with the Pinnacle and 100 Bishopgate already underway, the company is now working on 4 iconic new towers in the City, including ongoing work at the Shard by the DGR team. The company’s Intelligent Buildings and Rail teams have also been working on the Emirates Air Line cable car that extends across the river Thames.
ABB has invested close to £1 million and signed a 10-year agreement with Imperial College London to support a new carbon capture pilot plant teaching facility located at the university’s central London campus. Further supplemented by a series of sponsorships for Imperial’s chemical engineering undergraduates, ABB’s investment and involvement in the project signals the company’s commitment to shaping the next generation of industrial engineers.
Members since 1995, climate control was provided by Eaton-Williams Service Ltd to ensure passengers on the London Eye enjoy a spectacular view of the capital from the capsules.
