Gherkin Utilises Forge Bluepoint


Iconic London real estate enhances visitor experience with cloud-based technology.

London landmark 30 St Mary Axe, known as The Gherkin, has selected Forge, powered by Yardi®, to provide an enhanced and efficient visitor management solution.

The Gherkin welcomes over 2,000 visitors per week, including restaurant-goers who dine at the noted top-floor Helix Restaurant managed by Searcy’s. To manage the experience of these visitors, The Gherkin will adopt  Bluepoint to provide a fast check-in and the ability to scan access cards or mobile QR codes in speed lanes for secure admission to their designated meeting floor. Cloud-based, Bluepoint also provides real-time data on visitors expected and allows for seamless integration with other building management technology.

“30 St Mary Axe has a number of different tenants who require a journey for their visitors that fits their needs and culture,” said Clare Jackaman, Operations Manager at The Gherkin. “The Bluepoint technology will provide our reception and security staff with an efficient solution to provide the right level of service and ensure people in the building are visiting safely.”

“We’re excited to add The Gherkin to the growing list of Forge Bluepoint buildings across London,” said Paul Speariett, regional director at Yardi. “Working in partnership with The Gherkin team, we have built visitor journeys that provide them with the experience, security and efficiency they need.”
