The Walbrook building, just moments away from the Bank of England in the heart of the City of London, contains a mixture of offices, shops and residential space.
Named after the river that runs below the street but which has been covered since Victorian times, it was completed in 2010 and designed by award-winning architecture firm Foster and Partners – the company behind the Gherkin skyscraper.
Members of the National Union of Journalists at The Guardian were also sent an email over “missing” hand sanitiser dispensers and paper towels.
They were told: “It really is pretty dismal that some people in the building are prepared to put their perceived personal needs above those of others and to jeopardise the efforts we are all making.”
DAC Beachcroft, Gallagher Insurance and Vanguard all declined to comment. Walbrook building management, Worldpay and The Guardian did not respond to requests for comment.
