Developing a best-in-class, amenity-rich, sustainable office building in Central London to attract high-calibre talent.
Refurbishment and upward extension of a vacant commercial office building into 115,000 sq ft of desirable, sustainable net-zero office accommodation.
Retaining most of the existing building structure has enabled an upfront embodied carbon target of 415kgCO2/m2.
First project in London to re-use structural steel from the existing building in the development, and has been awarded a BREEAM innovation credit.
Well-connected to transport links, near Farringdon, Barbican, Moorgate and Old Street stations, close to a vibrant area with top quality amenities and facilities.
Large building size with full vacancy and well–proportioned floor plates, creating the opportunity for a flagship headquarters.
Upgrades include four additional floors, external terraces and roof gardens, replacing the three non-heritage-listed façades and creating a new primary entrance experience.
Maximises opportunities for urban greening at all levels and the significant increase in urban greening will reduce airborne pollutants in the area.
Targeting attainment of the highest sustainability ratings, including BREEAM Outstanding, WELL Core Platinum and a 5-star NABERS UK Energy Rating. Credentials will be supported by an articulated net-zero trajectory which will include a Whole Life-Cycle Carbon Assessment and Circular Economy Strategy.
