The Green Sky Thinking week 2016 featured many events focussing on how we best use energy in a sustainable manner.
I covered four events. The first was at Verde, London SW1 where Brookfield are in the process of converting an office block and reducing the buildings carbon footprint by up to fifty percent. http://www.brookfieldmultiplex.com/projects/verde-sw1-london-uk/
At the Kings Yard, London, E15 Engie provide heat and hot water to the buildings and apartments of the Olympic Village and other properties around The Queen Elizabeth ll Olympic Park. http://www.cofely-gdfsuez.co.uk/solutions/district-energy/
In London’s Newman Street Derwent and Buro Happold’s presentation detailed how energy management can support both landlords and tenants. http://www.burohappold.com
Any finally to 20 Fenchurch Street, the building known as The Walkie Talkie and the Hilson Moran presentation. http://www.hilsonmoran.com/Case-studies/20-Fenchurch-Street,-London,-UK/
It was a brilliantly clear morning and I was looking forward to the post presentation coffee and pastries to capture some candid shots of the guests. However, we had been at the very top level for a short while when the fire alarm rang out. No, it wasn’t a fire drill but apparently the real thing. So thirty-five stories later we were all back on the ground having missed out on some great shots and breakfast.
