Sustainability


CREDIT UNDER BREEAM AND LEED

There are many sustainable benefits, when compared to a conventional multi-storey car park, that can assist in achieving a number of credits under the standards of BREEAM (British Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) and LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). 


REDUCES CARBON FOOTPRINT 

  • Reduced operational energy consumption through minimal lighting, ventilation and passenger lift requirements
  • Reduced vehicle emissions (CO2, NOx, PM10) as engines are switched off during parking procedure

 

MINIMISES WASTE

  • Smaller footprint reduces need for excavation and therefore waste
  • Constructed from standardised offsite constructed units with minimal waste

 

 

RECYCLED MATERIALS

  • High level of recycled material content in steel used for the 5BY2 system

 

ELECTRIC CAR CHARGING & TRANSPORT

  • Electric vehicle charging option on every car pallet
  • Preferred parking for car share and low emission vehicles

 

WATER

  • Reduction in watercourse pollution risk as oil interceptors are used
  • Minimises local flood impacts through reduced runoff velocity

 

 

CULTURE AND HERITAGE

  • Small building footprint and discrete public entrance reduces impact on historic areas and buildings

 

HEALTH AND SAFETY

  • Increased personal safety at night
  • Reduced accidents to pedestrians
  • Reduced acoustic and vibration impacts

 

EQUITY AND FAIR TRADE

  • Accessible parking for all users including disabled and parents with children

The 5BY2 system sustainability assessment was conducted by Faithful+Gould, one of the world’s largest project and cost management consultancies and
is part of the Atkins Group. Faithful+Gould has a number 
of in house LEED and BREEAM assessors.
