Boiling & Chilled

The vision for the new HLW office was clear: combine operational performance and aesthetics.

Billi fitted the specification perfectly!

The challenge – an efficient boiling and chilled filtered water system

When it came to moving their offices from Shoreditch after 25 years, the HLW team paid the same attention to detail as they do for their clients. It was crucial that both the appearance and operational performance of its features were taken into consideration.

  • Energy-efficient
  • Design
  • Aftercare

The new office called ‘The Workshop’ positioned at the heart of Lonsdale Square was officially opened in the summer, it provides their growing team with a fully flexible workplace supported by a dedicated VR environment, garden and space to inspire.

With over 40 members of staff and a modern aesthetic throughout the office, HLW decided the two Matte Black Billi systems was the right fit.

HLW went ahead with two of the Billi Quadra 460 in Matte Black with matching drainage fonts, providing boiling and chilled filtered water to the impressive new office space. The heat-exchange technology of the system met the HLW’s objective for achieving high-efficiency, great aesthetics with no grilles and the matte black finish taps and fonts fits perfectly with their design intent.

The Result

We have been working with Billi as a company for a number of years, specifying a variety of projects with their fantastic products. It’s great to have a choice of different colours and finishes to ensure the taps compliment the overall design. Wellness is important to us at HLW so we were looking for the most efficient under-counter water systems in the market, Billi Taps offered us this solution.
