The Charlemont Exchange building on the banks of the Grand Canal in Dublin has been awarded a LEED Gold Certification by the US Green Building Council (USGBC), for outstanding environmental performances.

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), is the most widely-used green building rating system in the world, with Platinum and Gold the highest levels of accreditation awarded.

Since its completion in 2019, the seven-storey building has been home to the world’s biggest provider of flexible workspace, WeWork.

Our TB50 SG facade system, complete with bespoke fins and integrated concealed frame vents transform the look of the 123,000 sq ft building. The 5.9m high reception area with a circular rotunda feature exudes quality and leaves a marked impression on occupiers and visitors alike.

The refurbishment and extension was accomplished to the highest standards, using practical and measurable solutions to reduce energy and water usage, as well as Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) compliant materials which have environmentally, economically, and socially preferable life-cycle impacts.

During construction, a total of 95.68% of waste was diverted from landfill. Native and adaptive planting were installed to increase site biodiversity and limit the need for permanent irrigation.
