CIWEM leads by example with new London eco-headquarters
The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) has signed a £2.94m contract to develop a new eco-friendly headquarters in London.
The construction, which is to be completed by August next year, has been designed to achieve the BREEAM 'Excellent' standard of environmental performance.
The headquarters will see the redevelopment of an existing Victorian building and will include conference rooms, members' facilities and a residential component - which will meet the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4.
CIWEM is an independent registered charity that claims to advance the science of water and environmental management for a "clean, green and sustainable world".
CIWEM executive director, Nick Reeves OBE, said: "I am delighted that CIWEM is investing in the development of 106-109 Saffron Hill, London, creating a multi-purpose building constructed to high environmental standards.
"We look forward to seeing the facilities develop over the coming 44 week construction period. Our goal is to deliver a member-focussed facility that will be a wonderful legacy for the Institution and it stakeholders."
