Jersey IFC 1 Building wins ‘Best Use of Innovation’ at JeCC Awards
We are delighted that the IFC 1 building by the States of Jersey Development Company has won in the category ‘Best Use of Innovation’ for unitised façade at the Jersey Construction (JeCC) Awards, which took place at Hotel De France on 14th October.
This award category acknowledges the innovation of the industry across all areas. From the planning and design of the project, the contract procurement and management, the use of new products, off site construction, frontline and back ofﬁce support and the application of construction methods through to the monitoring of the ﬁnal performance of the building.
The development, designed by MJP Architects and Richard MacCormac, is a world-class business hub providing 68,000 sq ft of high-quality Grade A office space in the heart of St Helier.
The IFC 1 building has been completed as part of the overall master plan that will deliver 470,000 sq ft office space across six standalone buildings with private car parking spaces beneath the buildings and 520 public parking spaces on three levels below a public park.
IFC Jersey forms a new extension to the existing central business district and will establish a clear identity for the island’s premier industry and strengthen the connection between the historic town centre and the waterfront.
Waterman was appointed to deliver building services, environmental, sustainability and structural engineering design. Our sustainability experts provided advice to optimise the proportion of glazing and carefully considered solar shading that has been seamlessly integrated into the façade design.
Congratulations to all those involved in this great project!
