Chairperson Opening Remarks
22 Bishopsgate: A New Workplace Concept
The Journey and Vision for London’s Vertical Village
We open the event by sharing the original vision for 22 Bishopsgate – the most eagerly anticipated addition to urban landscape in a long time - and how this landmark building reflects a broader vision of development as a force for social good.
Expert Panel: Designing for the Future
Experts discuss the buildings’ design process, exploring the key aspects that make this campus so unique, including why health, wellbeing and community are at the very heart. How can a tall building address urban challenges of overcrowded pavements, increased numbers of cycles and vehicles, whilst supporting a high-performance workplace culture?
Super Experience: Enabling 22 Bishopsgate
Experience – now more than ever - plays a pivotal role in how people perceive an organisation from the outside, and how they work together on the inside. As part of the return-to-work agenda, we will explore the different facets of 22 Bishopsgate unique community which provides over 100,000 sq. ft of inspiring shared spaces, services and experiences, designed to meet the needs of its diverse, connected community.
Smart Technology: Enablers and Innovations
A Blueprint for the Office of the Future
Technology is well known for changing user behaviours and expectations – this will ring even truer in the new normal workplace. 22 Bishopsgate will offer a unique experience especially well-suited to life after a global pandemic, thanks to the completely touchless entry experience and an ultra-efficient vertical transportation strategy that avoids overcrowding, even at the peak periods in the day. Experts discuss the benefits and expectations for smart technology that support a seamless, safe experience.
The Augmented Workplace
Powered by Smart
In this building of technology innovations and ‘firsts’ – the enterprise grade infrastructure and Wi-Fi set it apart from other smart building offerings. We will discuss the reasons behind the decision and the benefits for tenants and developers alike.
The Platforms for Change
How are the latest developments in building and workplace technology, creating new scenarios for work and the buildings we inhabit? We explore new innovations and platforms that will enhance safety and support life after the pandemic and beyond, including, facial recognition and biometric access controls, sophisticated BMS systems, automated lighting, customisable climate controls, digital twin modelling, efficient energy consumption analysis, and much more.
The Future Workplace: A Destination of Choice
Expert Panel: The Occupiers Perspective
22 Bishopsgate is a new, people-focused workplace destination, expected to accommodate a community of up to 12,000 residents and visitors, and a working assumption that it will normally operate with about 6000 personnel at any one time. This panel will discuss why 22 Bishopsgate is the workplace of choice, and how this people focused smart building can support the evolving needs and future aspirations of the diverse businesses and people that inhabit it.
