Lessons from Ropemaker. (5:05 - see embedded video player above)
Ropemaker Place was delivered less than three years after British Land acquired the site near Moorgate in Islington, London. A small collaborative team meant that decisions could be taken quickly, and sustainability was built into the brief from the outset. Arup Associates provided integrated design services and Mace acted as project manager, quantity surveyor and construction manager.
