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!

2022… For some it may have been the year in which covid restrictions ended. The year of inflation. COP27. King Charles (and maybe also of Harry and Meghan). Heat. And cold. For us too. But for us, 2022 was also the year of exciting new developments.
