Sweco up for five accolades at major sustainability awards

20 February 2019
The business has been named a finalist in five categories at this year’s BREEAM Awards, with three of its major UK projects in the running.

The prestigious awards recognise the achievements of those involved in the specification, design, construction and management of BREEAM certified buildings – the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for infrastructure and buildings.

The new Bloomberg Headquarters in London is up for the Regional Award for Western Europe along with the Commercial Project – Post-Construction’ award. Sweco provided building services consultancy for the project, including fire engineering and vertical transportation, and introduced a number of ‘firsts’ in UK building services design. These included a water-saving vacuum drainage system – the first on this scale in the UK – and a vacuum drainage system which recycles greywater from basins and showers, which eliminates the use of mains water for toilet flushing.

The 1-9 Seymour Street development in London and the R7 Building – a mixed-use development in King’s Cross – have been shortlisted for the ‘Commercial Project – Post-Construction’ award. Sweco provided mechanical and engineering consultancy services for both projects and delivered additional building services and environmental consultancy services for R7.

The business has also been named a finalised in the BREEAM/Futurebuild Champions Award in the Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) Consultants category

Geoffrey Palmer, Sweco’s Buildings Director, said: “The nominations are a testament to our ongoing commitment to driving sustainability through cutting-edge design. Through close collaboration with our partners, combined with our team’s extensive insight and experience, our buildings consultancy team has helped to set a new standard for sustainability in commercial building design.”

This year’s winners will be announced on Monday 4th March at an awards ceremony at the Hilton Bankside, London.
