Kings Place Environmental Sustainability

Kings Place in London is a multi-arts venue with sustainability at its heart. Over the past few years, it has been working to reduce its carbon footprint, here are some examples below:

  • High standards of thermal insulation minimising heat loss through the fabric of the building
  • Efficient use of energy through good daylight penetration, motion activated lighting and an advanced transition programme to LED lighting throughout the building
  • Triple glass wall façade on the south and west aspects, dramatically reducing solar heat gain
  • Efficient use of water through low capacity cisterns, flow control in toilets and showers, leak detectors and harvesting of rainwater for irrigation
  • A ‘green’ roof with solar panels, and bio-ecology enhancing features including: a bug hotel, bird and bat boxes and plant boxes
  • A zero to landfill waste management system with a recycling rate of over 75% Kings Place uses energy from certified renewable sources
