This 12-storey office building is one of three Make projects at New Bailey, a vibrant mixed-use regeneration masterplan in Salford, Greater Manchester. Eden is a LETI Pioneer project, designed to achieve net zero operational carbon and champion sustainability, resource efficiency and wellbeing at every level.
We began the project by undertaking whole life and low upfront embodied carbon assessments to eliminate waste and reduce its carbon footprint. The scheme uses sustainable materials and incorporates enhanced ventilation in excess of the latest BCO standards, plus high-efficiency air source heat pumps that generate low-carbon heating, hot water and cooling. The highly insulated facade features Europe’s biggest green wall, devised to absorb air pollution, enhance biodiversity, reduce urban temperatures and provide thermal benefits.
Inside are large, open-plan floorplates above a double-height ground floor. Set back to create a pedestrian colonnade around the building’s base, the ground floor is home to lively reception and retail spaces that will activate the development.
The building is targeting several accreditations, including BREEAM ‘Outstanding’, WiredScore Platinum and a NABERS 5.5 star rating. It’s also in line to meet the UKGBC’s net zero carbon in operation targets and 2035–2050 office energy performance targets.
