Primeproperty Group recognises that environmental responsibility is essential to a sustainable business future.
Renovating existing buildings and repurposing spaces and materials saves 50% to 75% of the embodied carbon that would be emitted by constructing a similar new building. Reusing and revitalising character aspects of our buildings is also an important part of preserving its history.
Where possible we utilise the latest green building principles in our refurbishments to give our buildings a new lease of life in a sustainable and efficient manner.
13-27 Manners Street
Our Manners Street high rise is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment and strengthening programme. The development will result in a modern and flexible environment that is future proofed to reflect the way people are now wanting to interact in their workspaces.
Facilities will include an onsite gym, end of trip facilities, bike parks and e-charging stations. The project has been designed to achieve a 5 star NABERS rating - the system for rating the energy efficiency of office buildings. The existing gas boiler will be replaced with an energy efficient heat pump boiler and the building will have energy efficient LED lighting throughout.
