Our New Building


We are keen to manage the impact that the building has on the environment.

Throughout the design and construction process of the build of St. James’s Place Phase II build, we have adopted sustainable principles, including:

  • High efficiency and Low NOx gas boilers are to be provided as part of the mechanical services design
  • The scheme is aiming to achieve a good level of CO2 reduction, through building services design and building fabric improvement
  • The scheme is aiming to achieve a water consumption rate (litres/person/day) equal to a 40% improvement over the BREEAM notional baseline performance level
  • BREEAM Compliant cycles storage is to be provided
  • Energy efficient external lighting is to be provided
  • The majority of materials used in the major building elements are to be responsibly sources
  • The major building elements are to use materials with a low embodied impact according to the ‘Green Guide to Specification.’

We have been awarded a ‘Very Good’ rating in the BREEAM sustainability assessment. BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for master planning projects assessing energy, health and wellbeing, innovation, land use, materials as well as management.
