Vinci’s BBC Wales studios have become the highest BREEAM rated industrial building in the UK
Contractor Vinci Construction’s Roath Lock studios for BBC Wales in Cardiff has become the highest BREEAM rated industrial building in the UK.
The studios, developed by Igloo and designed by architect FAT, has also become the first industrial building to receive the BREEAM Outstanding award.
The construction team successfully diverted 96% of the waste from the site away from landfill and rain water harvesting will mean the building will save 2.4 million litres of water a year.
Steve Vorres, divisional regional director at Vinci Construction UK, said: “Given this project delivered against a very fast programme, this is a fantastic achievement.”
