AJ Award shortlisting: Building on BREEAM Excellent

August 21, 2019

The refurbishment of a Grade II listed building, for which Acies (an RSK company) acted as structural engineer, has been shortlisted in the Architects’ Journal AJ Retrofit Award Listed Building (£5 million and over) category. The building has already achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating, which demonstrates its high sustainability level, but the team, led by Morrow + Lorraine architects, hopes that the project will also win big at the AJ Awards ceremony in September.

The building, 8–10 Waterloo Place, in the St James’s Conservation Area of Central London, UK, underwent a full refurbishment of the office floors to improve the internal environment significantly and provide the standard of office accommodation now expected by occupiers in this prime location.

Acies was commissioned as the structural engineer by client Cornerstone. They provided civil and structural design and construction monitoring services between 2014 and 2018.

“It’s always great to see one of our long-term projects in the running for an award, particularly from a renowned industry publication like the Architects’ Journal: it recognises the team effort,” comments Acies managing director Lyndsay Waymont.

The AJ Retrofit Awards are the industry’s leading event celebrating design, engineering and construction excellence that prolongs and improves the life of the built environment. The 2019 awards will see architecture’s most creative and talented leaders and innovators attend an awards ceremony at The Brewery, London, on 11 September.
