Home of the London Borough of Hackney council, Christopher Addison House has been substantially refurbished and transformed into a modern, contemporary workplace. The rejuvenated offices accommodate over 400 staff, covering a variety of functions and council services.
Providing a broad range of workplace settings, the workplace features break out spaces, quiet areas, kiosks and conference rooms in addition to public services facilities. The scheme significantly improved the space efficiency of the building, creating space for additional desks strategically integrated with the new flexible working and collaborative areas.
Our building services team were appointed by project managers, Faithful & Gould, to design the mechanical and electrical services. Working closely with architects, our team coordinated the new works which used the latest air-source heat pump technology for heating and cooling to the offices. This replaced the original systems, substantially cutting carbon emissions and energy consumption.
The design features the latest LED lighting technology alongside the installation of presence detection and daylight dimming controls to reduce lighting electrical consumption by over 50%.
