Brief

We were entrusted with the challenge of achieving a BREEAM Bespoke "Very Good" rating while taking into consideration the very particular and specialist requirements of the Heron & Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

The Heron will be the first residential tower to be built in the City of London in 30 years that needs to meet the new stringent requirement of a Code "Level 3". We are working hand-in-hand with the large design team to find sustainable and financially viable solutions to particular issues pertaining to the high-rise nature and location of the development.
