Low Carbon Workplace: Mansel Court
Mansel Court is a 22,000 square foot commercial office in Wimbledon that has been refurbished by the Low Carbon Workplace, a partnership between sustainability experts the Carbon Trust, asset manager Columbia Threadneedle and developer Stanhope.
The refurbishment transformed what was a tired, inefficient 1960s building into a modern, desirable and highly energy efficient workspace. The refurbishment included a major overhaul of the building fabric and the introduction of an innovative cooling solution.
Occupiers of Mansel Court benefit from ongoing support from the Carbon Trust, helping them to operate the building as sustainably and efficiently as possible. Occupiers sign the Low Carbon Workplace Charter, which signals their commitment to work collaboratively with the Carbon Trust towards certification to the Low Carbon Workplace Standard.
Following the refurbishment, Mansel Court was awarded an Energy Performance Certificate “B” and BREEAM “Excellent” rating. Mansel Court is at least 50% more energy efficient than typical equivalent buildings. Mansel Court won the 2015 Guardian Sustainable Business Innovation Award for the Built Environment Category.
