The building at 20 St James’ Street has been refurbished to offer 53,295ft² of high quality office accommodation, for which Watkins Payne supplied building services engineering, vertical transportation engineering, BREEAM duties and energy consultancy to achieve an BREEAM ‘Very Good’ and EPC B rating.

All new building services were installed, using a heat recovery ventilation system to provide fresh air via the raised floor, and air source heat pumps (ASHP) for heating and cooling the office space. Two new passenger lift serve office levels, and shower facilities were provided on the basement level. A fire fighting lift which also serves as a goods lift has also been provided.

The linear tiled suspended ceiling conceal the fan coil units which provides heating and cooling as well as fresh air ductwork from ventilation units at roof level. Linear LED light fittings and controls are installed which considered occupant comfort and also reduce buildings energy consumption.
