This multi-million pound refurbishment has carefully considered multiple aspects of design to ensure the building is future proof in its form and function. A life cycle assessment to identify the embodied carbon of all the materials and construction and to ensure EPC A and BREEAM ‘Excellent’ are attained.
As the only new office building in the vibrant Leeds Central Business District, we aim to provide first-class facilities and better serve occupiers choosing to cycle to and from 12 King Street, with an increasing number of people travelling by bicycle as one of the most efficient and healthiest ways to get around a busy city.
It is why we were committed to delivering best-in-class cycle-friendly infrastructure and achieving the highest Cycling Score rating and, so far, 12 King Street is the only office in the city to have been given a Platinum Cycling Score certification – the highest certification to be awarded by the assessor. It is also one of just 54 commercial buildings in the UK that have achieved a Platinum rating.
The outstanding facilities at 12 King Street comprise cycle spa-quality facilities, which include a drying room, 72-cycle bays in the secure basement and a dedicated cycle repair space. There are also 58 lockers, modern shower and changing facilities and on-site cycle hire.
With West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s CityConnect programme committed to investing £6.3 million on cycling and walking routes across Leeds, providing the means for employees to take advantage of cleaner and more active transport options is a simple and effective way to support those aims.
As an office space committed to setting high standards and creating an environment where health and wellbeing will undoubtedly thrive, 12 King Street has so much to offer to occupiers and employees alike. Contact us for more information or to arrange a viewing.
