33 Glasshouse St consists of office space above 100 Regent Street, on the north side of John Nash’s iconic curve, just north of Piccadilly Circus. The buildings underwent a major refurbishment in 2015-16 redeveloping the entire office core, including new central plant. The offices notably sit above an area of continuous high traffic density in a zone which is often perceived as having an elevated level of local pollution. This made the site an ideal location to pilot RESET as an engagement tool with building occupiers.
RESET™ Air CS certification requires tracking and communicating the health performance of buildings using real-time data monitoring. This helps owners attract better tenants, maintain asset value, and reduce the potential liability associated with underperforming buildings.
RESET ensures that the air provided by the central plant to occupiers of the site meets high performance standards. It does this by monitoring and reporting levels of particulate matter (PM2.5), carbon dioxide (CO2), and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the outdoor air and comparing these to the supply air from the central plant, ensuring they are at a sufficient level as to not affect human health and wellbeing or potentially productivity.
Sitting above Regent Street, particulates were an area of interest when the project was first undertaken. To maintain RESET Air CS certification, the air is actively monitored with samples taken every 15 minutes. This data is analysed by Carbon Credentials’ ADAPt data platform with alarms sent if any issues are detected so that facilities managers can respond quickly.
According to , “
RESET Air CS certification works in conjunction with Carbon Credentials’ Collaborative Asset Performance Programme (CAPP) where settings and controls in the Building Management System (BMS) are actively monitored, making this landmark office space one of the smartest buildings in London.
RESET certification has been prescribed as Best Practice in Hermes Investment Management’s “Development and Refurbishment Sustainability requirements” since 2016. It is a part of a wider programme of innovative but practical health and wellbeing collaborations within the portfolio, including a programme with JLL and Carbon Credentials using wellbeing programmes to increase occupier engagement at four other multi-tenanted sites.
With an increasing focus on healthier work environments, RESET provides a certification which is operational and demonstrates quality management in buildings using real-time data on an ongoing basis. For this reason, Carbon Credentials has invested in becoming RESET Cloud compliant with the ability to deliver the sensor and communications hardware, performance analytics, public dashboards and engagement services to make indoor air quality and wellbeing a successful part of our data enabled building performance programmes.
About RESET Air
RESET™ Air is the world’s first sensor-based, performance-driven building certification program where indoor air quality is monitored and measured in real-time. Buildings and/or spaces are required to consistently maintain healthy indoor air quality at all times, as defined by the Standard. RESET™ Air is comprised of comprehensive standards for hardware or sensor performance, installation, maintenance and data communication.
