Moorgate Exchange is an exciting new development adjacent to Moorgate station in the City of London. Due to be delivered in early 2014, it offers 218,446 sq ft (20,294 sq m) of Grade A office accommodation.
The new development is one of the first in the UK to achieve both BREEAM Excellent and LEED Platinum. These two systems, which measure how green a building is, are expected to award the building high scores for its low impact on the environment.
Materials with sustainable properties, such as recycled aggregates in the concrete, were used in the construction process. Recycled rainwater and grey water storage systems have been installed to reduce the amount of potable water used in the toilets and the irrigation system for the ‘living’ walls on the terraces.
