The fight for net zero requires rigorous dedication & collaboration. When #buildingheroes put minds & resources together, impactful solutions emerge.

DWS Group and developer Lendlease joined forces to create one of the most sustainable headquarters in the UK – 2 Redman Place. Home to tenants like Cancer Research UK (CRUK) striving to create a healthier world, this property is the epitome of having all your stakeholders aligned on a mission for good.

Completed in 2019 & located at International Quarter London, the 33,626 m2, 9-storey commercial building achieved one of the highest ever BREEAM scores (94.0%) in the country along with WELL Gold. With help from a sophisticated building management system (BMS) & dedicated stakeholders, 2 Redman Place features:

🏢 An impressive triple-glazed closed cavity façade (CCF) system with integrated automated blinds to regulate solar gain and manage the cooling load.

🌱 Rainwater harvesting & greywater recycling, photovoltaic solar panels, 1,250 m2 of green roof space & living wall, along with energy efficient HVAC & LED lighting.

🌞 Floor-to-ceiling glass drawing in lots of natural daylight, air quality sensors that track humidity, air pressure & CO2, as well as façades & ceilings designed to minimise indoor ambient noise.

🧑‍🤝‍🧑 On-site welfare facilities providing mindfulness resting areas & Lendlease’s ‘loneliness lab’ that brings together businesses, government & civil society to innovate on how to redesign spaces to mitigate social alienation & loneliness.

Onwards to a better real estate industry!
