A state-of-the-art office development worked on by our Colchester office has been shortlisted for an international sustainable building award.
Ingleton Wood was instrumental in securing BREEAM In-Use accreditation for ‘7 More London Riverside’ in central London – recognising best practice in sustainable design and environmental performance.
The development, which has a prominent London location overlooking City Hall, the River Thames and Tower Bridge, has now been nominated in the ‘Offices (In-Use)’ category of the BREEAM Awards 2017.
The building provides a sustainable workspace for more than 6,500 people and was the first office in the capital to achieve the BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating along with an ‘A’ rated Energy Performance Certificate.
The 10-storey development includes 240 cycle spaces, electric car charging points and a biodiverse rubble roof that reduces the building’s carbon footprint. It's CO2 emissions are 86% lower than office developments of a similar size, achieved in part by use of recycled cooking oil to help heat the building.
Robert Diamond, our Sustainability Associate, said: “It has been a fantastic opportunity to work on such an outstanding building. ‘7 More London Riverside’ has pushed the boundaries of sustainability and for it to be nominated for such a prestigious award is excellent news.”
BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for masterplanning projects, infrastructure and buildings, with the awards recognising the ‘best of the best’ in BREEAM certified buildings.
