7 innovation credits have been achieved for minimising construction site impacts, high levels of daylighting, avoidance of VOCs, use of renewable technologies, provision of alternative modes of transport, water sub-metering and management of construction site waste. The building also achieved 100% of available credits for Management, Health & Wellbeing and Waste sections.
The standard is becoming increasingly adopted in Europe and around the world as a way of demonstrating to investors, developers and the market that a building has been designed to be low carbon and sustainable.
Martin Townsend said ‘The benefits that achieving our standard brings are triple fold – not only reduced environmental impact buildings that are higher value assets with reduced running costs but ultimately well-designed buildings that are great to work which inspire increased productivity. The Tower at Spielberk is a great example of this. Congratulations to all partners involved with this project’.
