Energy Efficiency

Turning an empty Norman Foster warehouse into a ‘green’ letting opportunity, JLL secured a 10-year lease for Schroder UK Property Fund. We refurbished the Grade II listed former IBM distribution center, improving its sustainability credentials at the same time.

JLL coordinated various services including Building Consultancy, Cost Management, Industrial Agency, PAM, Research, Strategic Asset Management and Sustainability.

Through a strong focus on sustainability, the team worked with Schroder UK Property Fund to improve the EPC rating of the warehouse from G to C, due to increasing the amount of insulation and installing efficient lighting.
