This new 1,000m² office provides multinational property and infrastructure company Lendlease with a modern flexible environment for its staff. It has been certified LEED CI Platinum, reflecting Lendlease’s global sustainability aspirations. Cundall provided sustainable design advice, MEP design consultancy, LEED consultancy and commissioning agent services from schematic design phases through to commissioning and handover.

Together with Lendlease’s strong sustainable development ethic, the project aligned the LEED design to Lendlease’s environmental, health and safety vision as opposed to ‘chasing LEED points’. 

Extensive green walls were used both in reception and the open office areas and potted plants were provided at a ratio of 8 for every one staff member. Curved ceilings at the façade perimeter encourages daylight, whilst smart daylight responsive LED task lighting reduced the need for ceiling mounted lighting. Sustainable material selection for all fit-out furniture and furnishings was achieved. Comprehensive utility metering and indoor air quality monitoring is used to ensure that the office is performing to its potential.
