PwC building wins sustainability award

Building began as a "blank sheet of paper"

PricewaterhouseCoopers London headquarters has been praised for its energy
efficiency.

The Big Four firm’s More London building was awarded a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’
rating – the first building in the capital, and the first major office in the UK
to be awarded the accolade.

The building, prominently located within sight of Tower Bridge, uses 80%
recycled aggregate within the concrete, and recycles waste heat to cool and warm
the building.

Roger Reeves, partner with PricewaterhouseCoopers said: “We had the
opportunity with the design process for the building, to take a blank sheet of
paper and raise the bar, both for ourselves and others, in the environmental and
sustainability performance of office buildings. This assessment sends a really
clear message that planning for the sustainable use of resources, in detail and
right through the process, can make good business sense.”
