Brunel Building, completed in 2019, is a 17-storey structure overlooking the Grand Union Canal and situated opposite of London’s Paddington Tube station. A remarkable feat showcasing the combined efforts of industry #buildingheroes, Brunel achieved a BREEAM Official 2014 ‘Excellent’ rating, a WiredScore ‘Platinum’ rating and a LEED ‘Gold’ rating 🏆
It’s not just all in the looks – Brunel stands out for these and other eco-friendly features:
♻️ More than 98% of construction waste was recycled, with the aluminium used for the façade containing 65% recycled content.
⚡ Designed to achieve a 71% improvement in operational energy consumption over a typical office building, as well as recycling of grey water from showers used to flush the WCs, thus reducing potable water demand by about 30%.
🏥 A high-level health and wellbeing review was executed to ensure the building was WELL enabled should a tenant wish to achieve the label for their fitout areas.
