ISG has won a £30 million job to build a new centre of sustainability excellence for Siemens in London’s Docklands.
The flagship Siemens Pavilion development – located within the new Green Enterprise District stretching across East London - has been designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects with Pringle Brandon as a model for sustainable construction and will become a permanent exhibition and education space showcasing green technologies.
The three-storey steel frame structure is designed to achieve a BREEAM excellent environmental performance rating with features including rainwater harvesting and re-use, photovoltaic cells, a ground source heat pump, solar water heating and high performance glazing to maximise the volume of natural light entering the building.
The pavilion will consist of a 300 seat auditorium, meeting rooms and high specification commercial office accommodation for around 230 Siemens employees. The project is due to commence in November and will open to the public in spring 2012.
