Old Street Yard project

Australian contractor Brookfield Multiplex has secured a contract to design and build the Old Street Yard project in London, UK.

The mixed-use development will comprise six new-builds and the refurbishment of two buildings.

It will also include the White Collar Factory, a new 17-storey, 236,000ft² office building designed by architect Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM).

The building will be designed to meet energy efficiency and carbon reduction strategy.

The top two storeys of the White Collar Factory will house a double-height office penthouse, with an open mezzanine level and a roof terrace with a running track.

"The design of the new office buildings is one that combines well-built industrial spaces with best practice office design."

A series of new alleys and passages will link the square and the tower to two retained buildings and three new ones, all between four to five storeys.

As part of the project, the redundant service yard behind the tower will be transformed into a new public realm, surrounded by five low-rise buildings.

The facilities will feature 41,000ft² of office space, 11,000ft² of restaurants and nine residential apartments.

Brookfield said the concept for the design of the new office buildings is one that combines well-built industrial spaces with best practice office design, based around the principles of reducing lighting, heating and cooling, whilst allowing maximum flexibility and adaptability.

The development is expected to achieve LEED platinum, BREEAM excellent and Code for Sustainable Homes level four.

Arup is serving as services engineer for the project while Aecom is the cost consultant.
