Office Building Moor Place, formerly Moorgate Exchange, achieves the Sustainability Performance of BREEAM 'Excellent' and LEED Core & Shell Platinum

The design of Moor Place, formerly known as Moorgate Exchange, responds to the constraints of the surrounding buildings in the City and its location falls within the strategic views of St Paul’s Cathedral. The outcome of this ambitious office project is an iconic 32,000m2 building, featuring green-terraced roof garden tiers stepping back from the Barbican. Designed for large City occupiers, the building creates open plan floor plates and rakes back at higher levels away from The Barbican in a series of stepped roof gardens. Floating on V columns, the building is designed to cantilever the floors over the Crossrail tunnel beneath. The building’s elevations have been designed to respond to their orientation and achieve optimum environmental control whilst creating a building that feels light and transparent. The building achieves nearly 30% less energy consumption than current best practice and a 20% reduction in CO2 emissions.
