Capita Symonds plots Victoria eco-revamp

  • Comment

Capita Symonds has been appointed to work on a string of eco-friendly projects in Victoria, London

Backed by Victoria Business Improvement District (BID), the programme includes roof gardens, rain gardens and living walls.

Sites earmarked for eco-interventions include the John Lewis Group head office on Victoria Street, Park Plaza Victoria hotel and 16 Palace Street.

The green infrastructure pilot projects are scheduled to complete by spring 2012.

Chair of Victoria BID clean and green steering committee Martin Kelly of Capita Symonds said: ‘We look to harness the expertise and potential within the industry to raise awareness, reward commitment and devise innovative solutions to issues that could be used in real situations to create a positive impact.’

The works follow on from a green infrastructure report commissioned by Victoria BID last year which looked at possible outcomes for increased rainfall attenuation benefits associated with ‘green features’.

The report also considered: biodiversity enhancement; climate adaptation; amenity value; human wellbeing and aesthetic enhancement.
