No. 1 West India Quay is part of the Canary Wharf development. Rising 33 storeys above the quayside, the building combines six spectacular penthouses, 152 luxury apartments, 47 serviced apartments, a 5* Marriott Hotel, car parking and restaurant, and leisure facilities, all within one landmark building.
As part of the fire strategy, Colt was employed by Shepherd Engineering Services to design and install pressurisation systems in the stairs to protect the means of escape for occupants and allow safe access for fire fighters in this building, which is more than 100 metres high. In addition, Colt designed and installed a system for individual room cooling for the hotel bedrooms and private apartments, using over 1,100 fan coils and 8 air handling units.
