ISG project win for low carbon excellence at Construction News Awards
The Construction News Awards showcase and celebrate the very best in the industry and winning an award is a well-recognised badge of excellence amongst clients and peers.
“It’s an amazing achievement to have won this award for the project team and all of our partners. This should become the norm when looking at retrofit and the circular economy of existing building stock” ISG’s Director of Sustainable Operations, Peter Kelly, said of the win.
“The collaboration shown throughout the project has led us to where we are today and provided a truly outstanding example for us to follow now and in the future."
The world’s first for a retrofitted sustainable office building sets new standards for low energy use, carbon emissions and impact on natural resources as well as user experience and wellbeing measured against multiple benchmarks.
The £12.8m project in central Cambridge has achieved multiple sustainable building certifications, with more soon to be announced, including BREEAM (Outstanding), the Passivhaus ‘Enerphit’ standard, the first of its kind, Well (Gold) certification, alongside ‘circular economy’ principles to minimise the volume and impact of natural and man-made resources used in the building.
This award also follows on from the project’s recent win in the Collaboration of the Year award at the AJ 100 awards in June.
Congratulations go out to our inspirational client, and all of our partners on the scheme; 3PM, Architype, BDP, CAR, Envision, Feilden+Mawson and Max Fordham.
Our Sky Innovation Centre scheme was also a finalist in the ‘Project of the Year over £50 million category’, and congratulations go out to our team and partners in a hotly-contested category.
