Developers BauMont Real Estate Capital and YardNine have appointed Mace to build a sustainable 12-storey office block at 100 Fetter Lane in Central London.
The Edenica building will provide 95,000 sq ft of Grade A office and retail space on the site of iconic London pub The White Swan.
The revamp of the former offices of DAC Beachcroft and the White Swan pub at 108 Fetter Lane includes the demolition of the existing buildings and the delivery of a new 12-storey development, roof gardens, new pedestrian route and pocket square at ground level, as well as ancillary cycle parking.
The development, designed by Fletcher Priest Architects will target the highest environmental standards of BREEAM Outstanding, as well as WiredScore, SmartScore and WELL certifications.
This includes planted terraces to encourage biodiversity and provide significant external breakout space, facilities to encourage active modes of travel, and high-performance 100% electric building services developed with Waterman Group to ensure that the building achieves net zero carbon emissions in use.
Edenica will be the first scheme within the City of London to be designed as a ‘storage bank’ where materials are held for future reuse, through the use of ‘Materials Passports’.
Materials passports are digital data sets that log characteristics of materials and components, giving them value for present use, recovery and future reuse.
Materials passports are being adopted to make it easier to reuse components and materials at the end of the new building’s life. They are part of the development’s wider approach to cutting whole-life carbon and creating a platform for material circularity.
Campbell MacDougall, Director of YardNine said: “This is an important milestone in the delivery of Edenica and we are looking forward to working closely with Mace to bring forward this best-in-class office development in the centre of London.”
Ged Simmonds, Managing Director for Offices, Construct, at Mace, said: “We are excited to take on the delivery of such an ambitious development, raising the bar on sustainability through the use of Materials Passports, as well as smart technology to enhance occupier wellbeing.”
The White Swan will be retained and relocated to the north-east corner of the site.
Mace is due to complete the scheme by the end of 2024.
