Designed as a new headquarters for Ernst & Young, the ten-storey 1 More London Place provides the company with 35,000 square metres of high-quality, flexible office space on the south bank of the River Thames between London and Tower Bridges. A full-height atrium links the building’s two ‘fingers’ of office space, creating a dramatic entrance space which is crisscrossed with three bridges per floor, with glass balustrades. The central concrete core and four peripheral steel cores are clad with extruded aluminium panels. The 24m-wide column-free floor plates benefit from generous amounts of daylight through the atrium and fully glazed facades, helping to minimise the building’s energy usage. Ernst & Young (trading as EY) is a multinational professional services firm headquartered in London. It was the third largest professional services firm in the world by aggregated revenue in 2012 and is one of the "Big Four" accounting firms. The organization operates as a network of member firms which are separate legal entities in individual countries. It has 167,000 employees and more than 700 offices in more than 140 countries. It provides assurance (including financial audit), tax, consulting and advisory services to companies. The firm's history dates back to 1849 with the founding of Harding & Pullein in England. The current firm was formed by a merger of American firms Ernst & Whinney (a successor firm of Harding & Pullein) and Arthur Young & Co. in 1989. It was known as Ernst & Young until 2013, when it underwent a rebranding. The acronym "EY" was already an informal name for the firm prior to its official adoption
