Context

One Canada Square - a skyscraper in Canary Wharf, London - was the tallest building in the UK from 1991 to 2010, standing at 235m above ground level and containing 50 storeys. In late 2010, it was surpassed by the Shard London Bridge.

Designed by principal architect Cesar Pelli, who based the design and shape mainly on the World Financial Center and Big Ben, one of the building's predominant features is the pyramid roof which contains a flashing aircraft warning light, a rare feature for buildings in the UK. The distinctive pyramid pinnacle is 240m above sea level.

Primarily used for offices, though there are some retail units on the lower ground floor, the building is recognised as a London landmark. It has gained much attention through film, television and other media because of its status as one of the tallest buildings in the UK.

Solution

Frese OPTIMA pressure-independent control valves and Frese MODULA bypass units were installed to ensure the hydraulic balance of the piping and the right temperature in the building.
