One Station Hill has been rated as the UK’s best design for air quality.
The Reading office development achieved an AirScore D&O (Design & Operation) Platinum rating, with the highest score certification company AirRated has awarded.
AirScore D&O is AirRated’s review of the proposed design and operation of a building’s HVAC system. Features in One Station Hill’s design include high ventilation rates, high-efficiency particulate filters and active carbon filters.
The office building, due for completion in 2024, is part of the wider Station Hill development, a £750 million ($924 million) mixed-use regeneration scheme by Lincoln MGT, a jv between developer Lincoln Property Company Europe and real estate investment manager MGT Investment Management.
Francesca Brady, CEO at AirRated, said: “It is only in the past couple of years that indoor air quality has been truly recognised as a fundamental factor in the built environment. Our latest research suggested that over 70% of people would have their decision to come into the office positively influenced by a healthy building certification that offered transparency regarding the health of their working environment.”
