Morgan Lovell has been shortlisted in the Sustain Magazine Awards for its development of a ‘green’ office interior.
The office design and fit out company has reached the finals for its pioneering refurbishment of a sustainable workplace.
Morgan Lovell is shortlisted in the refurbishment category for the work, carried out at the company’s own London headquarters, located in Noel Street, Soho. The winner is revealed in March on the first night of the design, construction and built environment event, Ecobuild.
Developed in the unlikely setting of a 1960s block, the office is in the type of building that would normally be considered an environmental write-off.
Morgan Lovell has already achieved a number of accolades throughout 2008 for its work at the Noel Street site.
These include a Golden Apple from the Green Apple Awards and a highly commended award in the ‘Best Practice In A Fit Out Project’ category, at the British Institute of Facilities Management Investors in FM Excellence awards.
Morgan Lovell also took a highly commended accolade in the Green Business Awards, and was a finalist in the PFM awards and Building magazine’s 99 per cent campaign for Refurbishment Awards, developed to find the best examples in the UK of carbon being cut in existing buildings.
In 2008, it also achieved the highest BREEAM fit out environmental assessment score to date in the UK, and as a result received an award from the Building Research Establishment (BRE).
David Henderson, managing director of Morgan Lovell, said: “The green office has been well-received across the facilities management and property sector in general as it provides a cost-effective, achievable and realistic solution for British businesses looking to drive down energy bills and become more sustainable.”
