A standout feature of this new development will be an extensive sensor suite which constantly monitors indoor air and water quality.

Baytree is promising that the project will be built using circular economy principles, wherever possible, so materials used can be reused.

Glencar managing director Eddie McGillycuddy said: “This is the first contract that Glencar have been awarded by Baytree and we are very happy to have been appointed to such a high profile and ground-breaking development.

"Some of the enhancements that will feature within the specification of this scheme are pioneering and we look forward to working closely with Baytree and the professional team and seeing the principles of the Baytree Edge ‘Innovation at work’ approach in reality”.

The 'innovation at work' concept is described as: commitments in the areas of technological advancement and social and environmental responsibility.

Features being discussed include: ancillary office pods with roof garden terraces and a drainage system which includes the harvesting of rainwater for re-use on site. It is hoped that the development will be available for occupation by December this year.

Jonathan Fenton Jones, Baytree Operations Director said: “Baytree is delighted to partner with Glencar for the construction of this unique scheme. The commitments made together in our partnering charter will facilitate us pushing further than ever before in facilitating energy savings, CO2 reduction, enhanced working environments and operational cost savings for our customers. We are confident that Glencar will deliver an outstanding scheme”.
