KPF's Lime Street tower achieves BREEAM first

  • Comment

Kohn Pedersen Fox’s planned 190m tall skyscraper is the first building to be rated under BREEAM’s updated standards

The 3700m² tower in the City of London, officially known as 52-54 Lime Street, has been awarded the ‘first-ever BREEAM UK New Construction 2014 certificate for building design’.

Due for completion in 2017 the ‘scalpel-shaped’ tower, which will become the new home for US insurance firm WR Berkley, has been awarded a BREEAM Excellent rating.

Gavin Dunn, director of BREEAM, said ‘The BREEAM UK New Construction 2014 scheme represents the latest and highest standard of sustainability. This achievement demonstrates a genuine commitment by the project team to deliver a high-quality development that will benefit the building owners and occupiers into the future.’
