Pioneer and role model for sustainable revitalisation and user comfort
The conversion and fit-out of its office space in 2014 earned 51 Moorgate a BREEAM UK Excellent rating with a score of 81.2%, as well as the maximum number of points for energy, management, materials, land use and ecology. On top of that, 51 Moorgate is the first British office building to gain Platinum WELL certification (v2 Pilot Building Standard) – the highest level of recognition from the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI).
IWBI’s certification honours projects with a particular focus on human health and the well-being of tenants and occupants. The standard takes an integrated approach and includes ten performance criteria: air, water, nourishment, light, movement, thermal comfort, sound, materials, mind and community. Both the office space and the café meet these ambitious requirements.
At the same time, 51 Moorgate was certified with the WELL Health-Safety seal. This proves that the building is designed in such a way that the health of the office users is optimally protected at all times by controlling the air quality and the number of people in a room, among other factors. Experts from the COVID-19 task force also assess measures aimed at reducing the risk of transmission, for example, as well as other long-term health and safety features.
