Office space developed with a focus on sustainability is helping to revitalise Manchester city centre, it has been claimed.
According to the UK Green Building Council (GBC), there have been a number of significant development and refurbishment success stories in recent years that give Manchester a well-earned reputation as a leading provider of sustainable office space.
Speaking as the Labour Party conference continued near-by, the GBC’s director of policy and communications John Alker cited the recently refurbished office space at Number One First Street in Manchester city centre as a leading example of high-quality sustainable development in the north-west of England.
“All eyes in Manchester are on new Labour leader Ed Miliband, but we are taking this opportunity to highlight the importance of green buildings in revitalising city centres,” Mr Alker remarked.
“What has been achieved with the extensive refurbishment by Ask Developments is very impressive,” he added.
Around 180,000 sq ft of grade A office space was recently made available as a result of the Number One First Street development and the building is among the first in Manchester to be given an ‘excellent’ BREEAM rating.
Meanwhile, the British Chamber of Commerce is urging businesses across the UK to sign up to the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme, which was initiated by the government in April of this year and was designed to encourage sustainability among both private and public sector employers.
