Project details

Our design team, who provided building services and internal fit-out, held a pivotal role in the collaboration process of this job, working closely from the outset with PwC, the developer (More London) and its team including the architect Foster and Partners and the contractor Mace.

The building includes environmental innovations such as the use of 80% recycled aggregate within the concrete used, and the recycling of waste heat to cool and warm the building, and 25% of energy produced on site using recycled cooking oil and the use of solar thermal panels.

Cool, calm and natural materials create a relaxing and comfortable working environment. In other area a vibrant and colourful palette is used to encourage creativity and to be inspirational, while warm and rich colours and materials are used in visitor areas to create a luxurious environment and express value.

We had the opportunity with the design process for the building, to take a blank sheet of paper and raise the bar, both for ourselves and others, in the environmental and sustainability performance of office buildings. This assessment sends a really clear message that planning for the sustainable use of resources, in detail and right through the process, can make good business sense
