Power and Prestige: 1 and 2 New Ludgate
FG Wilson generator sets are often found in some of London’s most prestigious buildings.

A £260 million development, New Ludgate is made up of two distinct buildings united by a new public piazza, completely transforming an area which had been neglected and under-used. The buildings include more than 355,000 square feet of office accommodation and 26,800 square feet of restaurant and retail facilities.
