We are thrilled that The Wilds at Barking Riverside has won the Community Benefit award at RICS Awards 2022!

The Wilds is a multi-purpose community, ecology and event space. A dual-purpose facility, The Wilds houses the collection centre for the largest single vacuum waste system in Europe, by Swedish company Envac, and is a place the public can learn about the wildlife and environment of the local area. At The Wilds, the community comes together to experience free programmes, exhibitions and resources that promote making sustainable choices.

XCO2 were appointed to carry out building services design, from RIBA Stage 1 through to construction support, and energy and sustainability consultancy. The XCO2 environmental team also completed the BREEAM pre-assessment and carried out the post-construction BREEAM assessment, for which it achieved an ‘Excellent’ rating.
