Savills property management team was triumphant at the recent BREEAM Awards walking away with the accolade for best BREEAM In-Use Office for management of Kings Place, London. The annual event took place in The London Marriott Hotel, Tuesday 7th March 2017.
As the appointed managing agent at Kings Place on behalf of Deka Immobilien GmbH, Savills was commended for achieving the UK’s highest ever BREEAM rating for property management. The firm has worked closely with Deka and the building’s tenants to implement a range of improvement initiatives aimed at addressing a wide range of issues in the building, including energy usage, water efficiency and occupier health & wellbeing. Kings Place is one of only two buildings to achieve an ‘outstanding’ rating for management in the UK.
The mixed use, prime London asset, located next to Regents Canal, is multi-let to a number of high profile, blue chip tenants with a leisure offer, including a restaurant, art and events facilities and a theatre on the lower floors. The BREEAM In-Use assessment on the building independently assessed the asset (built form) and management sustainability performance of the building across nine categories: energy; greenhouse gas emissions; water; waste; air quality; noise; lighting and health and wellbeing.
Alan Page, sustainability consultant in the property management team at Savills, comments: “This is a fantastic result for Savills that showcases the hard work of everyone involved. We will continue to strive to offer a best in class service in sustainable property management.”
The awards acknowledges projects that have demonstrated excellence in the application of BREEAM, the internationally recognised measure of sustainability master planning, infrastructure, buildings and communities.
