200 Broomielaw to be fully electric from renewables
Real estate investment firm AM alpha has announced 200 Broomielaw is to be fully electric from 100% renewable sources to minimise the building’s environmental impact.
The 80,000 sq ft of Grade A office building, situated in a stunning waterfront location in Glasgow’s city centre, is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment project.
The formula of smart building design, high quality specification and intelligent technology will make 200 Broomielaw one of the most energy efficient office developments in Glasgow. It features a host of sustainability benefits including efficient new M&E services, electric car charging points and intelligent LG7 LED lighting.
Facilities for environmentally friendly commuting have been included in the building and a Platinum CycleScore Certification has been achieved. There will also be a full wellness suite with yoga studio and gym-style changing rooms at the basement level.
Martin Lemke from AM alpha said: “200 Broomielaw is arguably the best and largest riverside office building available in Glasgow city centre. We care about the planet and have embedded sustainable technology to help our occupiers reduce their carbon footprints and meet future environmental targets.
“Specifically, one of the measures we have taken is to remove all gas and move to a 100% electricity tariff. In addition, we have committed to all power coming from renewable sources.
“These fantastic green credentials, alongside the extensive wellbeing facilities, underpin AM alpha’s commitment to the ESG agenda and will enhance the workplace experience for occupiers, helping them to attract and retain the best talent.”
On completion, 200 Broomielaw will deliver 80,000 sq ft of Grade A office space over nine levels, with large and flexible floorplates ranging from 8,665 sq ft – 9,041 sq ft. It also has a private terrace on the 7th floor with unrivalled views of the River Clyde.
Designed to provide the highest hygiene standards and be Covid-safe for occupiers, touch-free technology is featured heavily throughout the building.
The multimillion-pound project includes the complete refurbishment of all floors and common areas, relocating the entrance to the centre of the building and creating a new reception with waiting area, business lounge and dedicated concierge for all occupants.
200 Broomielaw benefits from being situated in a unique location, in both the city centre close to a range of amenities and transport links, and in a scarcely available position on the Clyde waterfront, providing impressive river views from every level. The area has undergone significant regeneration in recent years and continues to see further enhancement with the new Buchanan Wharf scheme recently opened across from the building.
JLL and Reith Lambert are joint letting agents for 200 Broomielaw.
