  • Targeting BREEAM ‘Excellent’


1000 Discovery Drive is targeting a ‘BREEAM’ rating of ‘Excellent’. This will be achieved through a high-performance façade, efficient ventilation and heat recovery, photovoltaic panels, and the use of air source heat pumps in an all-electric building. Multiple connections to nature are integral to the design. The carefully landscaped grounds are seeded with native varieties and wildflower verges. Additionally, the building’s cycle storage, showers and changing facilities support green commuting.
