Property investors Barings and LBS have picked Kier as main contractor for a £69m net zero office project on London’s Southbank.
The 12-storey 135 Park Street project in Southwark has been designed by architect Square and Partners to be net zero carbon in both embodied and in operation.
Kier will use low carbon concrete and a high-performance, largely prefabricated, façade along with efficient M&E services with SMART technologies to ensure operational performance.
The project is targeting BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ along with a 5-star NABERS rating for high specification, cutting edge sustainable commercial buildings.
Ian Mayhew, managing director, UK Asset Management at Barings, said: “135 Park Street is a net zero carbon development, both embodied and in operation and, combined with its generous amenities, we are providing just the sort of workspace that forward thinking occupiers require.”
David McKenzie, managing director for Kier Construction London, South & Strategic Projects, added: “In line with our Building for a Sustainable World framework, we will be using carbon minimising construction materials and techniques to deliver this green building as a showcase for our client.”
