SPIT PULSA Increase Productivity at new UBS Headquarters


5 Broadgate is the new headquarters for UBS, providing 67,000m2 of grade A workspace for up to 6,000 people. Featuring four trading floors, the 12-storey ‘ground scraper’ has been designed with low carbon emissions in mind, through carved out machined blocks extending through windows, courtyards, and terraces.

The project used over two million PULSA pins fixed with the SPIT PULSA 800P and 800E, which were used by the main flooring and M and E contractors.

“The SPIT PULSA cordless gas nailer, made it easy for the contractors to have one solution that gets the job done” said Anthony Coulson M and E Key Account Manager from ITW Constructions Product. 

“Savings on time and money with our PULSA system is the key here” said Anthony, “Using the PULSA direct fixing system increases productivity, and significantly reduces onsite dust and HAV exposure for the operatives”.

Walker Timber Group commits to IM360Ci

Timber Frame and Roof Truss manufacturer Walker Timber Group have recently made the switch to the Paslode IM360Ci with the purchase of 150 tools by their Scottish division Walker Timber Limited based in Bo’ness. A proportion of the tools were distributed to their southern operations together with their inter-group private housing development company, Dundas Developments Ltd.

With three manufacturing plants providing nationwide coverage the Walker Timber Group’s commitment to the IM360Ci makes them the largest Timber Frame manufacturer to date to take advantage of the cutting edge site nailing technology that the tool offers. Of particular interest to the Walker Timber Group was that their investment in their IM360Ci fleet would now guarantee that their high quality timber frame kits would be erected using the industry leading EC5 Service Class 2 compliant Paslode nail.

Working together on the project were Chris Horn, Paslode Technical Sales Representative and Barry Meacher, Key Account Manager – EWP.

Prestigous European HQ pours concrete into productivity

Bloomberg’s new European headquarters is situated in Cannon street in the heart of London, close to the Bank of England and St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Bloomberg London comprises of two buildings covering an area of 102,000m2. Connected by glazed bridges across a retail arcade, the ten-storey building complements neighbouring structures and protects views of St Paul’s Cathedral.

The building has three public spaces, for which works of art have been commissioned, and the basement of the building has been integrated with the new Bank London Underground station.

A few statistics on this project

  •  The Atrium uses 15,500T of steel – twice the amount used in the Eiffel Tower.
  • Biggest single concrete pour in London - 2000 cubic meters.
  • Largest sandstone project undertaken in the UK in over 100 years.
  • 14,000 artifacts found, including the Roman Temple of Mithras, which is being reinstated close to its original configuration.

The project used SPIT PULSA 800P, 800E and the P370 powder actuated tool, for Drywall and M&E applications.

“Bloomberg is such a prestige project, the contractors worked with SPIT to introduce the PULSA system to make contractors time on-site more productive” said Anthony Coulson, M&E Key Account Manager from ITW Constructions Products. 

“It was great to be part of this project and contribute to the speed and ease of installation for the contractors.” The PULSA system is capable of over 1000 fixes per hour, compared to traditional drill and fix options, the benefits for productivity, fatigue, HAV and eliminating dust are clear to see” said Anthony.
