Torus Building

Torus Building
Torus is a two-storey speculative office pavilion, gross internal area approximately 2400m2; designed to house multiple separate companies in high quality accommodation incorporating shared central atrium, core and entrance space.

The building has been awarded a "very good" BREEAM rating. This rating encompasses all aspects of sustainability, many of which directly relate to global climate, such as:

• Extensive use of low carbon impact materials
• High standards of insulation
• The use of energy efficient construction, building services and controls
• Avoidance of air conditioning through natural ventilation, thermal mass and solar shading
• On site energy generation through a wind turbine
• Building materials recycling and waste minimisation
• Access to public transport and facilities for cyclists

The central atrium, integral to the natural ventilation and daylighting strategy, is also an attractive space for tenants’ staff to occupy during breaks and informal meetings.

A 20mW wind turbine is sited adjacent to the building, supplying power both to the building and back to the National Grid as well as re-charging the local electric bus service.
