The Crystal has been designed to be one of the most sustainable buildings in the world. It is aiming for top LEED and BREEAM scores - the most stringent standards for sustainable design and construction.
The Crystal is an all-electric building that uses solar power and ground source heat pumps to generate its own energy. That means no fossil fuels are burnt to power the building. The Crystal showcases state-of-the-art technologies that support sustainable city living and also profiles Siemens’ Environmental Portfolio, the largest and most comprehensive in the world.
The building incorporates rainwater harvesting, black water treatment, solar heating and automated building management systems. The design of the building’s structure, including its glass, provides additional insulation and takes energy efficiency to a new level.
It also features charging stations for electric cars and will be part of the Source London charging network.Explore the building
