Helping to create Tomorrow's World

Edinburgh St James

Helping to create a Tomorrow’s World which supports thriving communities, businesses and ecosystems.

We believe it is our duty to create outstanding places for people in the communities of tomorrow, where community-wide prosperity is unlocked and environmental systems are restored. We fulfil this objective by being bold in our vision for places and by insisting on the highest standards of design, construction and operation, and by integrating a whole-life, real-life performance optimisation approach into our development and management processes.

We are helping to create a Tomorrow’s World which supports thriving communities, businesses and ecosystems by:

- providing our people with opportunities and encouragement to volunteer through the provision of time and match-funding, with a focus on educational, social, cultural and environmental stewardship projects;
- aiming to measure, benchmark and target key ESG metrics for all assets under management, whilst increasing our participation in, and engagement with respected industry organisations, such as the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB), to help improve their relevance for our clients;
- seeking the highest practicable green building and wellness ratings for our development and major refurbishment projects, where there is a sensible business case for doing so;
- creating a stretching framework for sustainable development, refurbishment and fit-out projects, which is applicable in tailored form for all project sizes, types and locations;
- continuing to engage with prospective and existing occupiers to promote and facilitate more sustainable occupancy;
- seeking to enable the occupiers of our commercial properties to be successful and responsible businesses by providing support and collaborating on performance monitoring and enhancement initiatives.

An example of this is our development of The Point, a two-phase, Tier 3 'powered shell' data centre development in London Docklands. The asset is located near Canary Wharf and the City of London which house some of the largest financial service companies, of which their secure customer data will stored at The Point. Completed in August 2017, Phase 1 and 2 offers a total of 126,231 sq ft (11,727 sq m) of area data, a technical area of 60,000 sq ft (5,574 sq m) and a power supply of 25.5 MVA diverse feeds. The Point is targeting a BREEAM Excellent rating once a tenant lease is secured, and features a green roof on the link bridge to enhance biodiversity with plans to potentially use water from the River Thames to provide coolth. 434513-G-INST-AN-02/19

L'Aljub case study

L'Aljub Shopping Centre, Spain

We introduced the ‘BREEAM In Use’ scheme the L’Aljub Shopping Centre in Spain, in 2014. The scheme aims to reduce running costs and improve the environmental performance of buildings; it included a two-year investment and implementation programme covering sustainable procurement, tenant engagement, water and energy reduction measures, recycling, environmental risk assessment, biodiversity, lighting and improved performance monitoring. The centre was recognised as 'very good', while the management was recognised as 'excellent'. L’Aljub was one of the first shopping centres in Spain to achieve certification, and was successfully sold in May 2018. 523465-G-INST-AN-06/19
