Work underway on Liverpool Street over-station scheme
Structural steelwork erection has commenced on the 1 Liverpool Street project in the City of London.
The project sits at the heart of the new Elizabeth Line, bookending the eastern and western entrances of the new underground railway at Liverpool Street station.
The 10-storey over-station development, which is designed by Eric Parry Architects, will provide 16,350m2 of premium office and retail space when complete.
Fully electric in both construction and operation, 1 Liverpool Street has been designed to achieve significant energy and carbon savings throughout its lifespan – saving an estimated 110 tonnes of carbon per year.
Carbon savings will be achieved through a range of measures including meeting the building’s heating and cooling demands through air source heat pumps, triple glazing, high-efficiency chillers and energy-efficient lighting.
Ged Simmonds, Managing Director Commercial Offices at Mace said: “We are delighted to be working once again with Aviva and Allianz Real Estate on another ambitious project. As a business that puts sustainability at the heart of what we do, I am particularly pleased with the high sustainability standards of 1 Liverpool Street, facilitating a move towards a lower-carbon future.’’
