Shakespeare’s Globe is developing a new-build West Block and refurbishing its existing basement and backstage spaces. Our sustainability consultants and BREEAM assessors at Eight Associates worked closely with the Southwark based architects, Allies and Morrison, and M&E consultants Skelly & Couch to develop the project’s sustainability strategy, which is currently on track to secure a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating for the new build elements of the project, and a high BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating for the refurbishment.
Client Quote: “Eight Associates has been, and continue to be an important part of the design team working with us on a number of projects, providing valuable insight and advice on sustainability and how best to achieve our required BREEAM rating. Eight Associates has demonstrated the ability to problem solve, when necessary to ensure a smooth and successful BREEAM process.”
"Our experience of working alongside Eight Associates on a variety of projects is of a professional and progressive company.

Max Horwell Partner at E+M Tecnica
"Eight Associates has rapidly become the 'go to' consultancy for all our ecology and arboricultural requirements. Each member of this friendly team has impressed us with their expertise, pragmatism and efficiency. The professional, 'fuss free' services mean we can turn projects around very quickly for our clients, which is critical for our business."
Andrew Brooks Development Manager at Lumiere Property
"We have utilised the services of Eight Associates several times now and found them to be professional, approachable and friendly. They understand the requirements and demands of BREEAM assessments and have helped us early on at design stage to ensure that our construction projects achieve the required rating. A key part of compiling the evidence is a prompt and efficient review which they deliver consistently. I look forward to working with Eight Associates again in the future."
Mark Lockitt M&E Services Manager at Buckingham Group Contracting
"Eight Associates has provided invaluable sustainability advice for our RIBA award-winning boarding house at Brighton College, for both the BREEAM assessment and ecology. They were able to ensure we met Brighton and Hove Council's stringent Sustainability Policy in a very tight timeframe. I have found Eight to be a breath of fresh air and have already appointed them on our next development."
