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.
Designed by architects Kohn Pederson 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. I’m very pleased that we managed to exceed our set target and that with extra effort, we were able to achieve this outstanding result.”
Canary Wharf Group Sustainability Manager Martin Gettings said: “We are absolutely delighted to achieve this level of performance on our very latest commercial offering. It is a true reflection of the team’s total commitment to delivering real sustainability within our developments and adds further value to the Canary Wharf Estate, both directly from the contributions of this project but also through the significant transferable learning generated because of our approach to sustainability.”
