NWRCA Sustainability Award Shortlist

Russell WBHO is delighted to announce the new Premier Inn at Circle Square has been shortlisted for the Sustainability Award in the North West Regional Construction Awards 2021.

A truly collaborative project between clients Bruntwood and Premier Inn, architects Fielden Clegg Bradley and Leach Rhodes Walker, consultants, sub-contractors and the Russell WBHO team, the striking building in Manchester’s Princess Street has exceeded its targets in almost every way.

With a brief to reduce use of fossil fuels, better Part L and achieve BREEAM Very Good, we were thrilled to score just four marks under BREEAM Excellent and better Part L by more than 30%.

And with a bespoke H&V system installed to avoid the need to use natural gas, we provided the client with heating efficiencies of over 700% and cooling efficiencies of over 1,300%, while the 600m2 94kWh solar PV will avoid 43,000kg CO2 per year and save £11,000 on operational fuel costs.

The award ceremony is being held in Liverpool on Friday November 19th.
