Derwent London entrusted the delivery of the new European Headquarters in central London for their client, international natural resource company, Rio Tinto to John Sisk & Son. Telstar House is a landmark eight-storey new build office block providing an impressive 9,290 m2 of office space.
This project very much looks to the future and, as such, the building has been designed and built to minimise its impact on the environment. It offers just 12 car parking spaces and over 200 bike racks, rain harvesting systems, Forest Stewardship Council joinery (using timber from managed forests) and PIR’s (passive infra red lighting), thereby saving a substantial amount of energy and operating cost.
The stunning external façade combines Spanish quarried Caliza Capri natural stone and Italian made curved laminated glass. The project achieved BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating.
In all my dealings with J Sisk, I have found them to be extremely professional with a very high level of integrity and are always looking for solutions to resolve issues, rather than just reporting on problems and asking others to resolve issues.Russell Durling, Derwent London
