We pulled together a full professional team; project manager, architect, M&E consultant and QS andled a detailed analysis of all the potential relocation sites, set againstTravers Smith’s ideal building criteria.
Stonecutter became the leading option. However, the building did not meet the required sustainability threshold so we worked with the developer to improve the BREEAM rating and significantly decrease the carbon emissions. At the same time, we negotiated doubling the shower and bicycle parking capacity, adding a two storey auditorium, securing a dedicated entrance and private lift bank to create a ‘building within a building’.
As a result, the landlord is creating a bespoke building which will meet all of the ideal building criteria and will be robust against tougher sustainability standards in the future.
