Angel Court first office to achieve BREEAM ‘Excellent’ at PCR in 2017
We are pleased to announce that BRE Global Limited has awarded Angel Court, Bank, a BREEAM 2014 Offices ‘Excellent’ Post Construction Rating (PCR), the first development in London to achieve a full certification in 2017.
Having also been the first City tower to complete in 2017, this achievement reflects the efforts of the client and design team to deliver a sustainable, future proofed design.
The prestigious 300,000ft2 prime office building is situated in the heart of London’s financial district, boasting 24-storeys of panoramic views across the Bank conservation and uninterrupted 360-degree views of London’s skyline.
Our team worked closely with Mitsui Fudosan UK (‘Mitsui Fudosan’) and development partner Stanhope Plc, in our role as the multidiscipline engineer providing MEP, structures, civil and environmental consultancy services.
The Grade A office space offers large, flexible floor plates throughout and benefits from a number of terraces and outdoor spaces. Sustainability has been a key priority for the design of Angel Court, with high performance standards reducing both energy and water consumption. These initiatives resulted in predicted carbon emissions being 35% less than building regulations, achieving an EPC A rating and a 50% reduction in anticipated water use through grey and rain water harvesting. In addition, approximately 60% of the existing foundations have been recycled which reduced the overall programme delivery and carbon footprint of the development.
Waterman’s Director, Mark Terndrup, commented; “The completion of Angel Court was a tremendous milestone for our teams and we are thrilled about its success. Achieving the BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certification is testament to our collaboration with Fletcher Priest Architects to provide the sustainable and innovative solutions which have made this an exemplary project that we can all be proud of.”
