Take a guided tour of the Spine Building, one of the world’s healthiest buildings, to find out more about its sustainability features.
The Spine recently achieved the highest sustainability rating attainable in the UK. The Spine has been awarded the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) Outstanding rating with the support of its landlord Liverpool City Council, Architect AHR, Contractor Overbury and the project BREEAM Assessor CBRE.
BREEAM environmental certification requirements measure the environmental performance of a building by assessing the use of healthy and low carbon materials, access to amenities, reduction of waste and water during the works and in operation. It also encourages on site monitoring of energy, water, waste and CO2 emissions.
“The WELL Building Standard is the premier standard for buildings, interior spaces and communities seeking to implement, validate and measure features that support and advance human health and wellness. The standard consists of 10 concepts – air, water, nourishment, light, movement, thermal comfort, sound, materials, mind and community. These concepts have all been incorporated into the building design to create a happy and healthy environment and to optimise the health of colleagues and visitors.”
From the bottom up, every detail serves a purpose, all materials are sustainably sourced and the living wall feature uses high-oxygen producing plants to improve air quality and promote biodiversity.
The concepts of the building make it one of the best working environments for mental health and physical wellbeing - with panoramic views across the City too!
