Brent Civic Centre on Course to be UK's Most Sustainable Public Sector Office Building September 25, 2012

The new Brent Civic Centre in London has been awarded the UK's first BREEAM 'Outstanding' rating in its use category. Having scored 92.55 per cent for the design stage assessment, it is now on course to become the most sustainable public office building in the country.

 

When completed in 2013, the landmark building will feature a 33% reduction in carbon emission achieved through a combination of solar shading, natural ventilation, facade performance and combined cooling, heating and power which utilises waste fish oil.
