Challenge – energy-efficient and reliable boiling, chilled and sparkling system with a sleek design

In March 2017, Perkins+Will relocated to The White Chapel Building in Aldgate. The new, 26,000 sq. ft. office space is an exemplar of workplace design as well as showcase for firm’s values. Most importantly, their aim to be LEED Gold and one of the first Fitwel certified projects in Europe, this project had very specific requirements: to create a flexible space that allows for agile working, collaboration and knowledge sharing amongst the staff.

  • Reliability
  • Energy-efficiency
  • Sleek design
  • Sparkling water

The company approached Billi UK with a clear objective: an energy-efficient and reliable boiling, chilled and sparkling system with a sleek design to match their contemporary break out areas.

Perkins+Will specified Billi Quadra Plus Sparkling systems, combining boiling, chilled and sparkling filtered water through the XL Levered Tap in Matt Black and hot and cold water from a Gooseneck Sink Mixer Tap in Matt Black.

Conference rooms

For their conference rooms, they opted for Billi Quadra Plus Sparkling system in Chrome over the sink to enable jugs and bottle filling.

The project was co-ordinated with TMJ Interiors, ISG contractors, Megan Mechanical and Mand M Ltd.
Perkins+Will has also taken out the Billi Gold Maintenance Plan, a planned maintenance agreement covering servicing and filter replacement.

The Result

We were looking for a smart solution to dispense boiling, chilled and sparkling water from one tap that would complement our newly designed office. Apart from a reliable under-counter system, we were keen to match the dispenser colour and finish with the kitchen design to achieve a contemporary and vibrant space for our staff. And, Billi products have helped us to achieve this perfectly.
