Bloomberg European Headquarters: The World’s Most Sustainable Office Building

Save Bloomberg_London_CaseStudy__KAF_UK34
One of London’s most iconic buildings, Bloomberg’s award-winning London-based European headquarters occupies 3.2 acres, providing approximately 1.1 million square feet of sustainable office space to 4,000 of Bloomberg’s employees. The completion of the high specification building marks the culmination of years of planning and development for both Bloomberg, its partners and Kingspan Access Floors.

Sustainability is at the heart of every design choice that has culminated in this building, and it has been named the world’s most sustainable office building with a BREEAM rating of 98.5%. The building, a zero-landfill operation, employs the most sustainable of building materials. Rainwater from the roof, basins and showers is captured, treated and recycled to serve vacuum flush toilets. When ambient weather conditions are temperate, the building’s distinctive bronze blades can open and close, allowing the building to operate in a “breathable” state which is complimented by smart CO2 control air distribution according to the approximate number of people occupying the building.

Bloomberg’s desire was to create a building which looks to the future, reflects the company’s commitments in practice to sustainability and encourages active working for its employees – the development’s interiors do just that, with sit-to-stand work stations for all employees and a central ramp spanning six floors that encourages movement through the building on foot.

The installation of 37,000mof Kingspan raised access flooring and 34,000mof Kingspan Attiro real wood engineered floor covering makes Bloomberg a landmark project for Kingspan Access Floors and supports Bloomberg’s vision to create an environment that promotes wellbeing and encourages collaboration and active working.
