JJ Mack Building – Most Sustainable Building in the UK

We are proud to announce that the JJ Mack Building has successfully achieved an ‘Outstanding’ rating in BREEAM New Construction 2018.

The award-winning JJ Mack Building is a 200,000sq ft development in Farringdon, and provides ten floors of smart-enabled office space, with terraces on three levels and retail units on the ground floor.

The JJ Mack Building scored an extraordinary 96.42%, making it the most sustainable building in the UK with no other building achieving a higher score.

The attainment of the BREEAM certification, the world’s leading design and assessment method for sustainable buildings, was facilitated by Helical’s vision and commitment to push the boundaries of sustainability, placing it at the heart of the design intent.

The development achieved maximum credits across the Management, Transport, Water, and Pollution categories, capturing the dedication of the design team from conception to completion.

Sustainability Consultant Hannah O’Brien said “It was a privilege to work alongside Helical and the design team, from concept through to completion, to achieve the final BREEAM New Construction 2018 certification for The JJ Mack Building. We are thrilled to see the dedication and commitment of the entire project team culminate in an Outstanding rating. This accomplishment underscores the teams’ collective efforts and the Client’s innovative drive towards sustainability and environmental responsibility.”

Laura Beaumont, Head of Sustainability at Helical added “We are delighted that The JJ Mack Building has received a final BREEAM certification rating of Outstanding with a score of 96.4%, furthermore the building holds the accolade of being the highest scored of any major office development. This impressive result supports our continued commitment to drive sustainability forward on all our developments and demonstrates what is possible when ESG is embedded from the outset. The key driver of this achievement was having an engaged design team, including Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands and L&P Group, who brought their own passion for sustainability to realise the ambitions of the project.”

L&P Group worked alongside Helical plc, Ashby Capital, Avison Young, Mace, Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, AKTII and Arcadis on the UK’s smartest and most sustainable development.
