A luxury hotel in the heart of London with BREEAM certification

With 216 rooms and sur face area of almost 7,000m², the CitizenM hotel in London, Shoreditch, has been entirely built using volumetric construction: the various blocks making up the buildings are pre-fabricated in a factory – including most of the internal and external finishings – prior to being assembled on-site. The building is composed of a two storey steel ‘plinth’ structure with ‘fully functional’ prefabricated hotel room modules stacked above the plinth. The modulated textured glass façade brings the building to life day and night.

Among the sustainability key figures, let’s mention 50% reduction in regulated CO2 emissions, 30% reduction in regulated CO2 emissions via Low Zero Carbon Technology, 25% reduction in water consumption use over baseline building type.
