Project story

The role of the London train station is changing. Moving away from simply being points from which the city’s millions of commuter's ebb and flow, the city train station has evolved into a hub of commerce, recreation and retail centres. 101 Moorgate is one of the latest in this new wave and one where Mace is the principal contractor, appointed by Aviva Investors.

But this 10-storey development is not only freeing up space for people and businesses where there was none before. It’s also being developed with environmental and sustainability credentials front-and-centre of its design. The most striking of a range of features is that 101 Moorgate will be fully electric when it springs into life following completion in September 2024. That’s thanks to the project being designed fossil-fuel free in operation, and targeting a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating.

This means air-source heat pumps, whilst photovoltaic solar panels will generate around six percent of all electricity needs from the sun’s energy.

Further reducing the carbon footprint, our team is sourcing a high percentage of low-carbon recycled steel for the structure. Produced by electric arc furnaces powered by zero-carbon electricity, this results in a steel structure created using 41% less carbon. The overall construction process will also be diesel-free.

When it comes to function and facilities, 101 Moorgate will provide Grade A office and retail space across its ground and upper six floors. Companies can bring their teams together in the mezzanine-level business lounge, which will also feature shops, changing facilities and cycle storage. Integrated green spaces, meanwhile, will help boost wellbeing, ranging from a large roof terrace garden to attractive outdoor areas on lower levels.

So next time you’re visiting the City and emerge from Liverpool Street Station’s Elizabeth Line Moorgate Exit, look up. You’ll see 101 Moorgate providing Londoners with more space, as it heads towards its low carbon targets.

Considered design

The design of the exterior will take into account the context and heritage of the local area. It will reflect the surrounding buildings in its carefully considered scale, proportion and detailing of three distinct coloured facades.

Smart solutions

Using smart solutions to carry out a significant amount of work offsite is helping shrink the building’s environmental impact. This includes fully assembling the precast concrete panels in a factory complete with double-glazed aluminium punched windows.
