One of Glasgow’s most stunning office buildings has achieved a top award for its eco-friendly energy performance.

The eight storey building, located on Queen Street in the heart of the city centre, gained a Silver award at the Scottish Green Apple Environment Awards in honour of their enviromentally-friendly construction.

110 Queen Street, once the site of the former Bank of Scotland Building, was constructed in 2015.

The property has a green roof consisting of a Sedum planting system which is designed as a wildlife habitat and has a bespoke recycling system to handle paper and dry waste, glass, food and batteries in order to create zero waste for landfill.

The building was recognised by the judges for its BREAM rating, energy performance and for creating an engaging environment for tenants thanks to its green facilities and design features. 

110 Queen Street competed against more than 500 other nominations in the Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice.

Ann Burns, Associate Director at JLL in Glasgow, said: “We’re delighted for 110 Queen Street, which is one of Scotland’s greenest office buildings, to be recognised with this award.

"Not only is it visually striking, but it is one of the most sustainable offices it is possible to build. With ultra-green utility use and a waste management system designed to keep the building from contributing anything to landfill waste, it is truly one of the most modern builds in Glasgow.”
