Regent’s Place, the Sir Terry Farrell master-planned, 13-acre, mixed-use estate in London’s West End, will be the destination of the next Sustain Worldwide VIP site visit on 29 November. The event builds on the recent highly successful visit to Central Saint Giles, central London
The British Land exemplar has been more than a decade in development and the latest phase completes the picture. The North East Quadrant phase consists of two commercial office buildings sited at the gateway to Triton Street, a residential building comprising 154 apartments, a 20-storey tower with views over Regent’s Park and private landscaped gardens, the New Diorama Theatre, retail spaces, external landscaping and public works of art. At Regent’s Place, sustainability has been embedded into every aspect of the project. Examples include carbon emission reduction actions (new buildings exceed regulation requirements by 50%), managing environmental risks, water conservation practices and estate wide initiatives to reduce and recycle waste, and to encourage bio-diversity. Sustain Worldwide, in its role as an elite leadership organisation bringing together leading businesses with shared sustainability objectives to collaborate, innovate and create commercial opportunities, has organised the site visit to this inspirational development from 10am-12pm on 29 November. The people whose input created the estate will be in attendance including developer British Land, Regent's Place management team who will conduct a guided tour of the estate including one of the exemplar buildings and HVAC supplier Climaveneta. The speakers, who will make short presentations (to be announced), will outline how the estate has been delivered to meet the needs of users, planning and building controls as well as hitting sustainability targets that go beyond compliance. The speakers will be available after their presentations to discuss their role on a one-to-one basis.
