Mace appointed to deliver “London’s most sustainable office tower”
Mace, the international construction and consultancy company has been appointed principal contractor by developer Edge, in partnership with Goldman Sachs Asset Management and their funding partners, LPPI and the London Fund, to their flagship ‘EDGE London Bridge’ scheme, which aims to become London’s most sustainable office tower.Targeting both BREEAM Outstanding and WELL Platinum certification, the 260,000 sq. ft development will provide 28 floors of state-of-the-art commercial office space, including a large shared green roof terrace to promote occupier wellbeing, as well as a new adjacent public park.
The building will provide a healthy environment for occupiers by harnessing natural ventilation through underfloor air supply and maximising natural light through floor to ceiling windows.
EDGE London Bridge has a targeted regulated energy consumption of less than 23 kWh/sqm which aligns with the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge operational intensity targets for new-build offices.
The scheme is located on St Thomas Street - near London’s vibrant South Bank - and is the latest project led by Mace in the London Bridge Quarter area, with the company having built the iconic Shard and Shard Place.
Edge has formed a joint venture with Goldman Sachs Asset Management and their funding partners, LPPI and the London Fund.
Mace is committed to pursuing a sustainable world, and first achieved net zero carbon in 2020 and retained the status for two years running, with overall emissions reduced by 11.6% in 2021.
Gareth Lewis, CEO for Construct, Mace, said:
“We are proud to have been appointed as main contractor for this pioneering project. With strong sustainability credentials, the ambition of this development goes hand in hand with our own vision and purpose.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to move the dial when it comes to delivering a truly sustainable building, and we are excited to be part of this journey. Mace has a strong track record of delivery in the London Bridge Quarter and we look forward to continuing to play our part in the transformation of this vibrant area.”
Andy Jones, Managing Director for Major Projects – Construction, Mace, said:
“We are honoured to work with such a visionary client to deliver what will be London’s most sustainable office tower. This builds on Mace’s previous experience of delivering pioneering Major Projects across London."
Fons van Dorst, Edge’s Executive Managing Director UK, said:
“EDGE London Bridge will be a flagship scheme for the city that can set a new bar for sustainability in London offices. At Edge, we are committed to driving down the embodied carbon of our developments, with the aim of hitting absolute zero carbon by 2050 – as set out in our Roadmap. Mace’s role as contractor will be pivotal in helping us to make construction of this scheme more efficient.”
Construction will begin in January 2023, with completion expected in Q1 2026.
