Nationwide is now the world’s largest mutual financial institution, the UK’s third largest mortgage lender, and one of the UK’s leading savings providers.
TagEvac® Evacuation System installed 2014.
Moving to the centre of the capital in Threadneedle Street has marked the latest journey for the 160-year-old mutual, which is headquartered in Swindon, as it continues to grow and build on its position as a clear and compelling alternative to the banks.
The new branch also has seven floors of new office space as it becomes the first mutual to have a major presence in the bank-dominated City district. The new branch, which has benefited from a new design, is also being positioned as one of London’s greenest as it stands in line to receive a top environmental rating from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
TagEvac® were tasked to provide the emergency evacuation solution for Nationwide Building Society’s new flagship branch and offices. We provided a scheme which allows for both evacuation and invacuation requirements. Our system was specifically designed to fit with Nationwide’s corporate display criteria, all part of our bespoke service. This provides the benefit that when TagEvac® is rolled out to other buildings within their property portfolio an agreed standardisation will be met.
