Deloitte’s 1 New Street Square wins BREEAM Award

6th March 2019

ID:SR Sheppard Robson is delighted that Deloitte’s 1 New Street Square has won at this week’s BREEAM Awards in the Commercial Projects – Post Construction category. The judges, who were focused on recognising projects that showed significant achievement in sustainable building design, development and management, noted the following about the project.

“1 New Street Square is a workplace that truly benefits people as well as the planet. The office scored a record 93.6%, far exceeding the ‘Outstanding’ threshold and is, at the time of certification, the highest scoring BREEAM UK Refurbishment & Fit-out 2014 project in the world and the first BREEAM Outstanding/ WELL Gold dual-certified office fit-out in the world.”

Deloitte’s 270,000ft2 (NIA) addition to its London campus embraces agile working and an intelligent building system to drive efficiencies and set new standards for wellness and sustainability. The project – which creates a rich mix of work settings and amenities – also centralises the business’s client spaces, welcoming them into the campus and introducing new ways of working alongside the Deloitte team.

The interior strategy defines neighbourhoods, routes and layers of privacy throughout the spaces, as one would when planning a city. People’s first impression of this ‘masterplan’ starts at reception, where a light-filled, double-height space with warm timber-clad surfaces sets the scene for the whole building.
