- Client: Argent
- Location: King's Cross, London
- Project Duration: September 2013 – August 2015
King’s Cross new development- an exemplar working environment that integrates the latest environmental technologies and targets continuing reduction in energy consumption and running costs.
Sturgis Carbon Profiling was appointed to complete a full Carbon footprint assessment of the King’s Cross site (entire N1C postcode), including buildings and building occupiers.
SCP investigated how much of an impact people have on their immediate environment in the King’s Cross area and have addressed questions such as which building sustainability measures can be considered most effective and what realistic carbon reduction targets should be set for the area.
- Complete light-touch Life Cycle Assessment for seven building typologies built/ refurbished in King’s Cross area, including Camden City Council office, Argent’s office, University of Arts (Centre St Martins) and new Google HQ
- Compare King’s Cross development to the average London development in terms of operational and embodied carbon emissions
- Analyse data collected from SCP questionnaire and identify behaviour patterns that could be targeted as part of the carbon reduction strategy
- Set 5 to 25 years achievable carbon reduction targets for Argent that incorporate carbon performance of buildings and people that use these buildings
- Develop tenant orientated strategies for energy and carbon reduction measures through education, and better understanding of the impact of consumables, waste and travel
