Meeting terms with LEED Green Building Rating System’s standard, a newly designed office at the Qube, in Central London has succeeded in achieving LEED Commercial Interiors Gold certification. HOK London has designed its own office with maximum green features. The structure uses recycled material and locally sourced material to cut down on carbon emissions produced by transporting it from far-flung areas.
The offices interiors include many breakout and conference areas, creating an atmosphere where staff can work flexibly. It also includes renewable material like sheep wool to reduce energy consumption. The sustainable provenance of all timber used was verified at 72% by using Forest Stewardship Council certified wood products. The interiors flaunt furniture, finishes and materials that have low formaldehyde and VOC’s. HOK London has put all their creativity and intelligence to design the office that they can call their own.
