Tower Bridge Court, London SE1

by | February 4, 2021 | Case Study

Client: Landid

Project Description:

Tower Bridge Court is a major refurbishment, extension and re-purposing project. It comprises the redevelopment of an existing building creating enhanced office accommodation and the introduction of complementary commercial uses. The multi-use nature of the proposed building responds to the high demand for office space of varying sizes in the area adjoining London’s iconic Tower Bridge. The site is very visible and strategically important. Any new building must be of very high architectural quality in order to enhance the setting of the conservation area. The new development will have an estimated GIFA of circa 14,168 m2, while the office section alone will have an estimated GIFA of circa 11,375m2.

Services Provided:

ADW have been commissioned by developers Landid to provide carbon accounting and life cycle costing consultancy. We also provided a security needs assessment for the project and advice on climate change adaptation.

Lessons and Next Steps:

ADW’s carbon accounting analysis has provided the client with an estimate that 6,383 tonnes of carbon equivalent are being saved by choosing a refurbishment as opposed to a new build option. We have calculated that this is equivalent to carbon capture by 16 hectares of mixed native species forest. (A young 1-hectare wood with mixed native species can lock up 400 tonnes of carbon in trees, roots and soil).
