Concrete Elegance: The Sustainable Workplace


David Henderson, Director, Bennetts Associates on New Street Square, London
New Street Square development represents a benchmark in elegant, sustainable design for speculative office building in London, embracing a holistic approach towards social and economic issues as well as incorporating the most advanced thinking on minimising energy in use and in the carbon footprint of the construction.

The rationalisation of the precast facade construction through the clever use of adjustable moulding created an efficient cladding scheme. The 400 cladding panels required just two moulds for casting the entire panel variations and this made a significant contribution to the reduction of building waste during manufacture. The project won The 2007 Concrete Centre Award for Sustainability.
