Glasgow office building honoured for green credentials

A Glasgow mixed-use development has been recognised for its environmental credentials.

110 Queen Street, an eight-storey building offering city centre retail and office space, won a Silver award at the Scottish Green Apple Environment Awards.

Constructed in 2015, the building features a concave façade of curtain wall glazing. It is located on the site of the former Bank of Scotland Building.

The development has a green roof consisting of a Sedum planting system which is designed as a wildlife habitat and has a recycling system to handle paper and dry waste, glass, food and batteries.

Ann Burns, associate director at JLL in Glasgow said, “We’re delighted for 110 Queen Street, which is one of Scotland’s greenest office buildings, to be recognised with this award. Not only is it visually striking, but it is one of the most sustainable offices it is possible to build. With ultra-green utility use and a waste management system designed to keep the building from contributing anything to landfill waste, it is truly one of the most modern builds in Glasgow.”

The property is owned on behalf of clients of DWS and tenants include ACCA, Brodies LLP, Deloitte LLP, DWF LLP, Grant Thornton and WSP.
