AES Sustainability Consultants are winners at the 2019 BREEAM Awards.

An annual fixture for built environment professionals, the awards recognise excellence in the sustainable building arena.

“It’s a real pleasure to highlight and applaud the ‘best of the best’ buildings across the globe,” comments Dr. Shamir GhumraBREEAM Director at BRE“They reflect an exceptional commitment to sustainable construction in a variety of ways and epitomise the value that BREEAM certification brings to projects at all stages of a building’s lifecycle.   Congratulations to all the winners and nominees.”

Public Sector Project – Post Construction Award goes to National College for High Speed Rail, UK. Working alongside Willmott Dixon and Bond Bryan Architects. AES Sustainability Consultants were appointed as the BREEAM assessor for this landmark building.

The building pushed the boundaries of best practice, achieving BREEAM Excellent using a well-balanced quality design, providing unique learning spaces in a highly efficient and comfortable building that will stand the test of a changing climate.

“This project differed from the others in its category in its function but also in its simple and understandable approach to sustainable design. The clarity and transparency of the design solution together with a clear focus on robust, cost-effective solutions and well-presented biodiversity gains were noted as were the references to the architectural heritage of the railway network in the UK. A simple but accomplished project.” BREEAM Awards
