Mayor gets green fingered for Langley Point

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - Langley Point Birmingham office space BizmoveThe green credentials of one of Birmingham’s newest energy efficient office buildings have been celebrated in a special ceremony attended by Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Cllr John Lines.

He was on a visit to Langley Point, off Bath Row, the only new self-contained, BREEAM-excellent rated office building of its size and type in Birmingham city centre.

To mark the occasion, the Lord Mayor together with the Lady Mayoress planted five trees in St Thomas’s Peace Garden, which is overlooked by Langley Point.

The event was organised by Bizmove in conjunction with Birmingham Trees for Life (BTFL) – a joint initiative between the Birmingham Civic Society and Birmingham City Council.

The initiative has seen hundreds of trees planted around Birmingham in recent years and this is the first time the link has been made between tree planting and green property development.

Built to the highest calibre specification, the 44,350 sq ft Langley Point uses the latest eco-technologies and is designed to keep running and maintenance costs to a minimum, with passive chilled beam cooling, solar heated water technology and 98 per cent efficient boilers.

A new marketing suite shows how its super energy efficient features and convenient location can benefit future occupiers.  The building promotes key messages on the benefits of opting for a greener place to work, such as three minutes’ walk to The Mailbox, nine minutes’ walk to Bullring and nine minutes’ walk to New Street Station. 

“We commend the developers of Langley Point for supporting our tree planting initiative as well as enhancing our skyline with their splendid new building,” said Cllr John Lines, Lord Mayor of Birmingham.  
The event was also attended by the new chair of the Birmingham Civic Society Christine Cushing in one of her first official roles, BTFL chairman Geoff Cole and representatives of both the Civic Society and BTFL.

As a joint venture partnership between Folkes Holdings, Corum and Trigram Properties, Langley Point is one of just a few new BREEAM-excellent rated commercial developments in the city.
