The View becomes a BREEAM accredited venue
Code for a sustainable built environment
The View has achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating. This has been achieved despite the project including a substantial retained and refurbished historic element.. Many features in the retained element are over 100 years old which we know add the stunning charm to The Library and parts of The View, which added an extra layer of complexity and challenge to this project compared to a typical newbuild. This challenge has been overcome by embedding sustainability principles into the design from the earliest stages, and following the clear vision of creating a high performance building.
Consistent high performance has been achieved across all sustainability categories here at The View. The end result of the venues re-built is a highly functional, adaptable, and sustainable building which retains the strong identity of the historic elements of the existing building and the character of the RCS.
