We’re delighted that our client, Deloitte, triumphed in the Commercial Project – Post Construction category at this year’s BREEAM Awards. Deloitte won for its 1 New Street Square HQ – an outstanding example of sustainable design that challenged traditional green building thinking.

The annual BREEAM Awards recognise excellence in sustainable building design. The judges commented: “1 New Street Square is a workplace that truly benefits people as well as the planet.”

The office scored a record 93.6 per cent, far exceeding the BREEAM Outstanding threshold. At the time of certification it was the highest scoring BREEAM UK refurbishment and fit-out project in the world and the first BREEAM Outstanding/WELL Gold dual-certified office fit-out in the world.

1 New Street Square was the culmination of a four-year programme to redefine the workplace of the future. Sketch worked closely with Deloitte and Sheppard Robson’s interior design team to provide an exemplar green building that would enhance the wellbeing of occupants and visitors.

“27,000 items of furniture were meticulously selected for their sustainability and wellbeing credentials – the objective throughout was to create an outstanding the user experience and being able to integrate biophilia into the space was a key requirement. We developed pioneering solutions and the project also won Plants@Work awards and was awarded a gold leaf award for best project of the year. Sketch are immensely proud to have been part of this journey.” - Beth Harrison, Sales Director

Our contribution included providing a wide range of flexible, ergonomic work settings, integrating tech into furniture elements and collaborating with project partners to secure the outstanding BREEAM and WELL Gold accreditations.
