Atelier Ten has just secured the interim BREEAM Excellent certificate for the first phase of Stoke Central Business District. The phase consisted of two buildings (Building A and Building B) designed to help regenerate the degrading centre of the Potteries.
Located in the newly designed business district in Hanely, one of the five towns of Stoke-on-Trent, Building A and Building B both garnered scores of more than 70% in the BREEAM ratings, resulting in an Excellent rating. This score was achieved with the integration of low-energy environmental systems, high-performing facades and a connection to the wider district heating scheme that forms part of the regeneration programme.
These ratings are a landmark for the development team’s vision for a cohesive Central Business District connected with the cultural and university quarters of Stoke-on-Trent and its continuous improvement for both the city and the environment. Atelier Ten is pleased that the hard work of everyone involved has achieved such a successful project.
