Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates in partnership with Henning Larsen Architects, the project is a 17-story-high mixed-use development that will pioneer innovations in sustainability, aiming to become a community destination with spaces for collaboration, celebration, and relaxation. The building features around 17,300 sqm (186,200 sq ft) of bespoke façade made of aluminum curtain wall with terracotta elements.
Not only will the building be the largest all-electric office in the UK, but BGO has committed to the development’s energy being supplied from fully renewable sources, with no gas supply and no diesel generator on-site, ensuring zero fossil fuels in operation and during construction. As a result, the building is designed to meet EPC A and WELL ‘Platinum’ certification and exceed RIBA 2030 sustainability targets as well. The scheme is also the UK’s first office building to target a combined BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ and 5.5* NABERS rating, the world-leading environmental performance rating tool which rates the operational energy use of offices.
