BREEAM In The Washroom Part 3: Siemens Case Study

2 years ago


At Lovair, we love to work with the industry’s best architectural practices and interior designers to re-define the hand-washing experience and people’s perceptions of what it can do.

An example of this was back in 2012, when we worked with Pringle Brandon Perkins & Will on the Siemens Crystal Sustainability Centre in London’s Royal Docks, one of the most sustainable buildings in the world.  Amazingly, this building secured both Outstanding BREEAM compliance and platinum LEED accreditation, the most stringent standards for sustainable design and construction.  Designed by Wilkinson Eyre, the building runs off energy generated by solar power and a ground source heat pump.

We were engaged to look at the washroom products, in particular; the handwashing experience, our area of expertise.  Aside from the bespoke corian sinks we created, we looked specifically at the water savings that could be achieved through the implementation of the correct faucets.

The L870 series sensor operated touch free tap was specified, an elegant wall mounted spout in a satin finish.

Aside from aesthetics, this had particular qualities that satisfied the BREEAM requirements, at a flow rate of only 4l/min earning 5 BREEAM credits.

The full specification of the faucet can be viewed here, with full 3D Cad files, and REVIT available.
