Project Details

Building S2 is a commercial building totalling 190,000 Sq ft of space.

As with all the office buildings at King’s Cross, the very latest technology will reduce running costs and minimise environmental impact.

The building is being designed to meet the BREEAM standard ‘Outstanding’ and will be linked to the site-wide district heating network. This network provides close to 100% of the development’s heating and hot water needs, as well as 80% of electricity demand. The building has been designed to maximize the environmental benefits of its location. Orientation, thermal modelling and the use of thermal mass for cooling all contribute to energy efficiency.
