Senator House is a Category A part occupied office refurbishment inclusive of a full refurbishment to occupied floors, roof top plant, creation of roof top terraces and external amenity space and over-cladding to the Queen Victoria Street and Cleary Gardens elevations in St Pauls. The project includes the creation of an ancillary entrance, new cycle storage provision and re-configuration of the atrium space. The public realm was also landscaped to enhance the arrival experience to the building.
In addition, Paragon completed a pre-planning sustainability statement and a pre-contract development sustainability review for the redevelopment of this office building. Assessing factors such as energy performance, waste / recycling volumes, water usage, health / well being and site management against benchmarks such as BREEAM, Well Building Standard, Considerate Construction Scheme and EPC.
The objective was to demonstrate that the sustainability profile of the scheme would go beyond the statutory minimum with regard to environmental standards. By doing so, the development will be futureproofed for long term investment return for the client.
Once the sustainability targets were agreed by the client and design team, Paragon monitored progress throughout the development to completion of the scheme.
