IFC5, the second building of the International Finance Centre, won the Jersey Electricity-sponsored Sustainability Award at this year’s Jersey Construction Council Awards held at the Royal Showground on Saturday.

Only the third building in Jersey to achieve a BREEAM ‘excellent’ environmental rating, IFC5 provides almost 70,000 sq ft of supper-prime Grade A office space over six floors. It was designed by MJP Architects, with Waterman Group plc as full-service engineers, and built by Camerons.

In making the award, which was presented by JE CEO Chris Ambler, judges look for a project that benefits the Island as a whole, is there for future generations and has a significant environmental benefit. The long-standing award is even more important as we move towards a carbon neutral future. 

Sustainability Award 2019 IFC5

IFC5 is constructed to the highest standards, going beyond the requirements of local building bylaws, and the minimum mandatory energy requirements for BREEAM excellent. Column-free floor plates and excellent levels of natural light make IFC5 a great place to work. Innovative renewable heat pump heating and cooling technologies reduce energy consumption, and secure bike storage and showers encourage sustainable transport for employees.

Also short-listed were Espoir and French Harbour Boardwalk.
