It will be the first commercial office development in Birmingham’s central business district to benefit from the city’s District Energy Scheme. A pivotal part of Birmingham City Council’s climate change strategy, which aims to cut C02 emissions by 60 per cent by 2027. It will also use 100 per cent renewable energy for its electricity, making it one of the cleanest and greenest office developments in Birmingham.

The scheme is the first commercial office building in the city to combine enhanced facilities management with smart tech, via its own mobile app. The app will deliver an unrivalled occupier experience and provide the on-site property and facilities management team with real time data, including information about the building’s energy performance and usage by tenants. Occupiers will also have access to their own energy performance data via the app, enabling them to demonstrate their environmental credentials.

BAM says that almost 10,000 weeks of local employment have been carried out by staff from within ten miles of the project site while 114 students have worked on it through the company's links with Birmingham City University.

A total of 47 apprentices have worked on the development alongside several weeks of placements for students.
