Latest green building comes online in London

Posted by Mark
July 2, 2014 in Property Development

A building offering its tenants low fuel bills and further reduced running costs has entered the London commercial property market, after developers signed off on the project.

Moorgate Exchange, right in the heart of the capital’s financial heart, the Square Mile, is one of the most environmentally-friendly office buildings of recent build projects. Its design has seen it achieve both BREEAM Excellent and LEED Platinum ratings, with the 12 state-of-the-art office floors being augmented by a green roof, living walls and six further roof terraces.

The project has also used green building materials in its construction wherever possible. This has included the wide scale use of recycled aggregates throughout the composition of the concrete mix used on the build. The water containment systems used are also leading edge, utilising collected rain water for irrigation and many essential water closet operations.

Other advanced technologies have also been integrated into the build, with the managing director of construction firm Skanska, Paul Heather, stating:

“By using technologies such as LED lighting, low-energy fan coil units and highly efficient chillers and boilers to create this building, we have ensured that tenants will enjoy low energy consumption and reduced running costs.”

Standing 12 storeys and offering more than 20,200 square metres of work space, the building presently gives office space to high profile investment firms Quadrant Estates, BlackRock, and CarVal Investors.

Moorgate Exchange is located at 27 Fore Street in The City, enjoying its setting immediately adjacent to Moorgate underground station.
