Cundall was appointed on the Wellcome Trust Cornerstone project to provide low-energy building services and environmental designs for its new 28,000m2 flagship headquarters in central London. The building's striking appearance is in part due to the extensive glazing and the fact that only the western façade has a solar control coating; all other facades have low-emissivity (low-e) glazing. This has resulted in highly transparent facades and good daylighting without compromising occupant comfort.
In terms of performance and energy consumption, the Wellcome Trust headquarters is capable of consuming considerably less energy than comparable office buildings. The building was designed under the 1995 Building Regulations and it is anticipated that it will still comply with the 2011 Regulations. Using advanced simulation tools, Cundall was able to combine a number of innovative energy-efficient design techniques, including:
