Leading engineering, environmental and design consultancy Sweco has shared its experience and knowledge of developing sustainable buildings with a delegation of property developers from Estonia and Russia, as the companies look to implement sustainable building techniques.

The tour was instigated by the Russian Green Building Council and was designed to share some of the latest technology and knowledge utilised by Sweco’s buildings team in the UK, and how its innovative design features could be used by developers abroad.

Sweco’s buildings team led a delegation including Anna Fedorova of Renova Lab, Moscow, and Estonian developers Igor Mölder and Marko Kull of Capital Mill OÜ and Timofey Sukonkin of Fair Service OÜ, to visit some of London’s most sustainable buildings, including the Bloomberg Building and Five Pancras Square.

Sweco’s head of building sustainability Kartik Amrania, said: “Sweco has been involved in designing some of the most energy-efficient and sustainable buildings in London. We know that the awareness of sustainability in construction is growing internationally and we are very happy to be able to share our expertise with developers that are looking to implement some of the latest technology in their own buildings.

“Both the Bloomberg Building and the redevelopment of the area around King’s Cross have led to the creation of sustainable buildings that help to give back to the environment, of which we, and our clients, are very proud.

“The event was very successful and we hope it will lead to a strong partnership with developers in Russia and the Baltic region.”

The delegates visited the Bloomberg Building, which features a range of innovative measures aimed at making the building more environmentally friendly and sustainable. Sweco was involved in the design and development of the chilled ceiling, vacuum toilets, breathing building façade and energy centre.

Offices in the King’s Cross area, including Five Pancras Square, which is now home to Camden Council, were also visited by the delegation. In the redevelopment of the area Sweco delivered six Grade A office buildings which received an ‘outstanding’ BREEAM rating.

In the UK, Sweco employs 800 people and has particular expertise in the fields of energy, transportation, environment, asset management, sustainable buildings and water.

It consults on major projects nationwide via its network of offices in Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Maidenhead, Manchester, Newcastle, Peterborough and Solihull.
