Studio Egret West designed this 32-storey mixed use tower consisting of start-up office space and residential for Galliard Homes. XCO2 developed the MEP design and energy and environmental strategy.

XCO2 worked closely with the architects on the façade design to incorporate high-performance fabric and develop a shading strategy, based on extensive environmental modelling, that responds to the various orientations’ solar angles whilst contributing to the designer’s intent on architectural language and variations of façades and views.

The high-performance fabric, the proposed efficient systems and façade-integrated photovoltaic array are expected to achieve a combined 35% reduction in CO2 reductions over building regulations.
