Outstanding award for Canary Wharf tower
Canary Wharf Group’s newest commercial address, One & Five Bank Street, has joined an elite group after achieving a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating, making it one of the most sustainable buildings of its type in London.
The steel-framed 27-storey tower is currently in the early stages of construction with groundworks and piling ongoing and completion scheduled for 2019.
The development achieved a design stage score of 87.1%, verified by independent assessors in accordance with BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology).
Designed by architects Kohn Pedersen Fox, One & Five Bank Street is a 65,000m² commercial scheme, comprising high-quality office space with three levels of state-of-the-art trading floors, a retail unit at ground level and public access to a new promenade along an adjacent dock.
Canary Wharf Contractors Project Executive Bianca Stendtke said: “This BREEAM 2014 design stage score is a special achievement for us. It is our first project to achieve this level, it is an acknowledgement of our project and consultant teams’ diligent work, and reflects our commitment to sustainability.“
