Office building Moor Place case study
The use of structural steel enabled the net lettable space to be maximised by the use of long clear spans, fire protection on the columns was minimised by infilling with concrete and a reduced overall floor depth allowed the incorporation of an additional storey. The total steel tonnage was 2,900 tonnes. The building achieved a BREEAM “Excellent” and a LEED “Platinum” sustainability rating for its low impact on the environment through the use of high performance facades, high efficiency HVAC systems and other conservation measures. It is one of very few buildings in London to achieve these highest environmental standards. The cost of the building was £56 Million.
