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.”
"Eight Associates has rapidly become the 'go to' consultancy for all our ecology and arboricultural requirements.
