Naturepaint is a ground breaking, revolutionary and award winning eco-friendly paint.3Sphere chose this innovative product to use in their prestigious development of an office complex within a "BREEAM Excellent" rated building at the heart of the City of London.
DC Advisory Partners (formally Close Brothers Corporate Finance) commissioned 3Sphere to design, fit-out and provide furniture for DC Advisory Partners’ new 22,000 square foot office space in a prestigious new build by Hammerson Plc development, at 60 Threadneedle Street, London, EC2.
As a BREEAM “excellent” rated building, the eco credentials were extremely rigorous. The landlord required a “sustainability diary” to ensure optimal material usage and minimal wastage.
With a grass roof
and a biomass boiler
was a natural choice as an internal decorating medium to achieve the BREEAM rating says 3 Sphere’s Associate Director Operations, Eric McDonogh.
Made in Cornwall from local china clay with natural plant extracts and non-toxic pigments, the powder paint has an extremely low carbon footprint, up to 80% less than some other paints. Naturepaint
is the only paint to be certified by the Carbon Trust. It’s condensed format also enables savings in transport and warehousing, further reducing overall costs and carbon emissions.
Ross Harling, the founder of Naturepaint
, says—“we aim to manufacture safe natural building materials that do no harm to buildings, people and the planet. Naturepaint
was engineered from end to end in order to provide a durable coating that contains no VOC’s, no toxins, no petro-chemical solvents and no tins to dispose of, thereby reducing landfill issues. The high level of ‘breathability’ in Naturepaint
also adds to the classic building structure and reduces the risks of Sick Building Syndrome from condensation and mould build up”.
Eric McDonogh of 3Sphere says that “it was the complete Naturepaint
offering that was appealing— no fumes, no VOC’s, no paint tins to dispose of, and made in UK from sustainable locally sourced materials. A Winner all round”.
