American Embassy


The American Embassy, a five-acre establishment situated in Nine Elms in southwest London, was designed by highly acclaimed US architects Kieran Timberlake after winning a competition held by the US State Department. The Embassy’s design is a testament to the architects’ exceptional skills and attention to detail, which have earned them numerous accolades.


The adoption of Zip-Lock products by SMACNA (Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association) has proven to be an automatic choice for the suspended systems of a large crystalline cube building that conforms to the exacting US building standards. The versatile Zip-Clip system has been utilized for all building services, with the company providing a full and detailed technical submission, as well as onsite testing and product training.


This building represents a new approach to embassy design, emphasizing the role of architecture in international diplomacy. The Zip-Clip system has demonstrated its potential in situations where compliance with various international standards is a prerequisite. The value of the Zip-Clip system lies in its versatility and ability to meet rigorous standards. As a fully certified product, it has been utilized in all aspects of building services, showcasing its efficacy and precision. The success of this project serves as an inspiration for the potential of the Zip-Clip system in various international settings.
