1 Embankment Place wins at AJ Retrofit Awards 2014
PwC's 1 Embankment Place has won the AJ Retrofit Award for Office over 2,000sqm.
The retrofit has seen more than 4,500 employees move towards flexible working by opening up the office floors and creating a central hub space on each floor which links the previously underutilised North and South Atrium.
Judge Hugh Broughton described the project as 'comprehensive and cohesive,' adding that it is 'a cutting edge work place fit for the 21st century with significantly enhanced performance and energy reduction.'
This project's latest accolade follows success at the BCO regional Awards and at the New London Architecture Awards, as well as recognition as the most sustainable building ever assessed under BREEAM, achieving a record-breaking Outstanding rating of 96.31 per cent.
