Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has completed a specialist building access project at the Shell Centre in London.
The Shell Centre, located on Belvedere Road, in the London Borough of Lambeth, is the global headquarters of Shell plc. In July 2011, Shell announced that a joint venture of Canary Wharf Group and Qatari Diar had bought a virtual freehold (a 999-year lease) on the Shell Centre for £300m and would redevelop the site. The tower was to be left in place, but the rest of the site was replaced by a new scheme of offices, shops and restaurants. The new development is called Southbank Place.
In this project, engineers from PTSG Building Access Specialists Ltd have refitted the LED lighting at the Shell Centre. PTSG worked collaboratively with the local council and the Garden Trust to ensure all parties were entirely satisfied with the result. The Group’s engineers are experts in working at height and used a mixture of rope access and mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs).
LED lighting offers a number of sustainable advantages including a long lifespan, excellent energy efficiency, low voltage operation and no heat or UV emissions.
