Eco-friendly office oasis


A new environmentally-friendly overhaul of prime London office space has been completed.

The 1950s Bloomsbury block, Conquest House, has been renovated to create more than 22,000 square foot of office space.

The six-floor building is being touted as an ideal business headquarters, in an area that has seen huge rental growth in the past few months.

In fact, rental costs in the area have grown by 18% since 2010.

The refurbishment has seen many new eco-friendly features added – including systems to harvest rainwater, solar panels and natural air cooling. The building has already received a “very good” rating.

The Bloomsbury area is predicted to keep growing in the coming months, providing “opportunities for strong capital growth,” according to developer GMS.

Architect Glyn Emrys said: “It is particularly gratifying that environmental performance is fast becoming a key priority across the commercial sector.”
