Hat trick of BREEAM awards for Grontmij
Engineering consultancy Grontmij UK has been awarded three top accolades by BREEAM, the sustainability assessment method for masterminding projects, infrastructure and buildings. Among them is being recognised as UK assessor company of the year for 2016 because of the company’s ability to consistently achieve the highest BREEAM ratings of its projects over a 12-month period.
The consultancy’s work was further recognised when a project it advised on, Camden Council’s new community building at Five Pancras Square (pictured), won an international BREEAM award in the mixed-use and other-buildings category.
Individual excellence was acknowledged when Grontmij’s head of building services Kartik Amrania was acknowledged as one of three BREEAM assessors of the year from the UK.
Alexander Drysdale, Grontmij UK operations director and a BREEAM accredited professional, said, ‘Winning these awards recognises the capability of the Grontmij team as a whole. Kartik’s individual talent and our total commitment to partnering with clients to apply sustainable design principles that create better buildings.
‘Our clients appreciate our ability to think both creatively and sustainably to ultimately deliver projects that contribute positively to the environment in which they are built and benefit the people that use them.’
