Hurley Palmer Flatt has been appointed as the mechanical and electrical engineer for the Principal Tower project, working closely with the international architecture and design studio Foster + Partners. The tower is a 175m residential development currently on site on the north-eastern flank of the City of London, part of the Principal Place mixed-use development, and due to complete in April 2019.

The UK’s leading independent engineering consultancy will undertake the MEP, ESD, fire strategy and specialist lighting design, as well as the daylight and CFD studies. 

The tower will provide approximately 300 new residential apartments and will be one of the tallest buildings in Central London.

It will provide a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom units as well as a duplex penthouse spread over a total of 322,500 sq. ft together with 5,000 sq. ft of leisure facilities, including an indoor swimming pool and gym.

Its site has been created using structural gymnastics of steel transfer beams and inclined columns straddling the tracks leading into Liverpool Street station – a move that underlines the value and scarcity of land in or near the City.
