GIND UK delivers ongoing warrantied maintenance at 5 North Colonnade


GlND UK is delivering fully comprehensive BMU maintenance at 5 North Colonnade, an office building in Canary Wharf, London, recently used by Barclays’ Corporate & Investment Bank.

Integral Cradles, the design and installation partner of GIND UK, recently completed a complex façade access project on site. Its team safely decommissioned the old building maintenance unit (BMU) using a mobile crane. After developing a lift plan for the mobile crane, this target was achieved according to client’s schedule and cost plan.

Integral Cradles also installed a track-mounted safety line to assist users accessing the equipment safely.

Barclays Bank is moving its investment bank staff in London from 5 North Colonnade into its nearby headquarters at One Churchill Place, consolidating office space in the Canary Wharf financial district. The British bank said the move was part of a long-term review of its property footprint, as banks worldwide cut back on real estate amid a shift to more home working during the COVID-19 pandemic.

GIND UK will now deliver the fully warrantied maintenance of the façade access solution at 5 North Colonnade for client Canary Wharf Retail Ltd.
