World Class Office Accommodation
The International Quarter will provide a diverse and flexible range of large, open, Grade A office space that will feature fully customisable floor plates ranging from 15,000 to in excess of 40,000 sq ft, allowing tenants to create office accommodation that not only meets their needs but also reflect their character and corporate culture.
The International Quarter will be the most sustainable office development in London, designed, delivered and operated with sustainability at its core.
Within the buildings, efficient design and reduced energy demand will be key. The provision of smart metering combined on-site services, healthy and high quality indoor environments, all supporting a BREEAM Excellent minimum standard.
Outside, the development will promote and enhance biodiversity, water use efficiency, considerate and responsible construction methods, green transport and waste minimisation.
The impact of the scheme on the local community through education, training and establishment of both construction and end user jobs will underline the message that there is more to sustainability than just ‘green’ buildings.
