ISG has been awarded the contract to build a £30m sustainability centre for engineering giant Siemens in London Docklands.
The Siemens Pavilion, within east London’s new Green Enterprise District, has been designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects, and will become a permanent exhibition and education space showcasing green technologies.
The three-storey steel frame structure will incorporate rainwater harvesting and re-use, photovoltaic cells, a ground source heat pump, solar water heating, and extensive areas of high performance glazing to maximise the volume of natural light entering the building.
It has been designed to achieve a BREEAM excellent environmental performance rating.
Public areas include a large interactive exhibition space with an education facility and dockside café, whilst the Pavilion also boasts a 300 seat auditorium, meeting rooms and high specification commercial office accommodation for around 230 Siemens employees.
