Please vote for us in the 2degrees Champions Awards!

26th March 2015

2degrees has unveiled the organisations, projects and people that are driving sustainable business forward, inspiring others and leading by example through innovation in the 2degrees Champions Awards. We’re thrilled that Eight Associates has been longlisted for an award!

Your votes decide the winners for each of the 15 categories, and there is a short voting window – please read our entry and see if Eight Associates deserves your vote in the Property Retrofit category.

Here’s some more detail:

Eight Associates entered the category of ‘Property Retrofit’ for their energy consultancy work on 119 Ebury Street, the UK’s first listed building to achieve BREEAM Outstanding at design stage, which we hope showcases the ‘art of the possible’ for a sustainable retrofit in a heritage context.

  • Eight Associates acted as BREEAM and energy consultants
  • We were appointed pre-planning to advise on the most appropriate strategies to achieve the targeted ‘Outstanding’ rating and 80% reduction in operational carbon emissions
  • Eight Associates carried out a tenant profiling study to establish optimal design features with regards to minimising the in-use environmental impact and encouraging ‘green’ behaviour in building end-users.
  • Bi-weekly design team and design co-ordination meetings during RIBA stages 3 and 4 ensured the architectural, mechanical and electrical designs met aspirations.

“119 Ebury Street deserves to win a 2degrees Champion Award because it shows it is possible to retrofit historic buildings to reduce their environmental impact whilst maintaining fully their architectural interest and historic value.”
