Six storey development in Cambridge aims for high sustainability standards

Architect Pringle Brandon Perkins + Will has been granted planning permission for its One Station Square scheme in Cambridge.

The six storey building will provide 129,000ft2 of office space in the city centre and retail outlet at ground floor level.

The team working on the scheme for developer Brookgate also includes structural engineered by Mott MacDonald and mechanical and electrical engineer Hilson Moran.

The scheme is expected to be highly sustainable and achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating. The energy strategy, developed by Hilson Moran, is based on passive design measures and includes high performance facades, low energy lighting and measures to increase natural light.

Sven Töpel, chief executive of Brookgate, said: “The building offers corporate occupiers the opportunity to take modern space in Cambridge’s city centre with unrivalled connectivity to the transport network.”
