As part of the larger masterplan the developer, MEPC, have placed a BREEAM requirement of ‘Excellent’ for all buildings on site.
Mainer Associates have been appointed directly by MEPC for pre-tender works and novated to the Contractor for the construction phase.
We have conducted a number of workshops at the early project stages to ensure that BREEAM is considered and credits can be awarded prior to tender. This strategy also provides greater cost certainty as tendering contractors have more detailed information with which to develop their tender submission.
Sustainability is a key aspect of MEPC’s company policy and the buildings at Wellington Place demonstrate this. Including a combination of innovative building fabric design and services installations, the project team have been able to deliver high quality, energy efficient and functional office space.
The buildings make the most of the considerable amount of glazing increasing levels of natural daylight. In combination with daylight dimmable lighting and PIR controls, lighting loads on the building are kept to a minimum.
Highly efficient Variable Refrigerant Flow heat pump systems with a high coefficient of performance provide heating and cooling throughout the building while air-to-water heat pumps handle hot water demand in some buildings.
With the city centre location, public transport links are excellent and the developer has further reduced car use by providing extensive cycling facilities, including covered cycle racks and shower and changing facilities.
