Work has completed at City Place 3, a new 65600 sq ft headquarters building adjacent to London Gatwick Airport.
Engineering consultancy DSSR provided the services for the project, commissioned by the Airport Property Partnership – a joint venture between BAA and Morley Fund Management.
The four storey ‘L’ shaped building was designed by Hamiltons Architects and claims to have been designed to reduce energy consumption.
The building uses a displacement ventilation system, multiple external shading devices, high performance glazing, and elevational treatments which respond to their orientation. A large underground attenuation tank is also said to restrict surface water run-off.
