Charlemont Exchange awarded LEED Gold Certification

A large, fully glazed, circular rotunda feature defines the Charlemont Street /Charlemont Place corner. Emphasis is given to entrances by means of double height glazed screens and metal canopies.

Charlemont Exchange has been awarded a LEED Gold Certification by the US Green Building Council (USGBC), for outstanding environmental performances. Since its completion in 2019, the seven-storey building has been home to the world’s biggest provider of flexible work space, WeWork.

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), is the most widely-used green building rating system in the world, with Platinum and Gold the highest levels of accreditation awarded.

Charlemont Exchange’s refurbishment and extension was accomplished to the highest standards, using practical and measurable solutions to reduce energy and water usage, as well as Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) compliant materials which have environmentally, economically, and socially preferable life-cycle impacts.

During construction, a total of 95.68% of waste was diverted from landfill. Native and adaptive planting were installed to increase site biodiversity and limit the need for permanent irrigation.

Water efficiency was also a priority and we managed reduce the overall building water consumption by 44.8%.

With a BER of A3, Charlemont Exchange, enjoys an exceptional location in Dublin 2 with numerous local amenities, services, and residential developments within walking distance, as well as multiple transport links including Dublin Bus and Luas, providing excellent connections to all areas of Dublin and reducing the need for car dependency.
