JAC & Investec Asset Management:
Building a Sustainable Future
JAC Group is always delighted to work with clients that share their drive for sustainable projects. Working with Investec Asset Management (becoming Ninety One) has allowed us to surround ourselves with experts with the same sustainable agenda.
Following excellent direction from our client, Tahera Hammond, the team has developed a bespoke sustainability brief focused around energy efficiency, occupant health & wellbeing and obtaining third party BREEAM environmental certification for the fit-out of the new headquarters at 55 Gresham St, London.
Projects certified under BREEAM need to demonstrate best practice against a wide range of environmental impacts such as energy, water, materials, transport and pollution.
According to statistics from the BRE Group, who are the world’s leading building science centre, a building with BREEAM Excellent certification achieves on average over a 30% reduction in carbon emissions compared to buildings that have not been certified. The fit-out of Investec Asset Management’s (IAM) offices at 55 Gresham Street has successfully achieved a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating thus far, which will be finalised upon completion.

Within the recently refurbished 55 Gresham Street (with the eagle eyed able to spot where Fletcher Priest have brilliantly managed to embed cast metal grasshoppers, inspired by Sir Thomas Gresham’s coat of arms, within the architecture) the future home of Ninety One is going to be beautifully designed and environmentally attuned.
