Join our community of One Planet living leaders, and gain recognition for the giant steps you’re taking to create a better world
We have recognised Bonham Quay, a new mixed-use development in the heart of Galway, as a leader in One Planet Living®.
Combining office, retail, restaurant and cultural space, this 34,405sqm scheme is designed to create a healthy, greener work environment for 2,600 people where it’s easy to make sustainable choices.
Highlights of the development, which is to be built on land contaminated by previous industrial use, include:
Sue Riddlestone, co-founder and CEO of Bioregional, said: “Bonham Quay is an inspiring response to how our city centres can evolve to create places we want to visit and work in, with space for nature which all can enjoy. This, combined with its highly accessible location, and the deep commitment of the development team to designing a high-quality scheme that makes it easy for people to live a sustainable lifestyle, has ensured that Bonham Quay deserves recognition as a sustainability leader in Ireland for One Planet Living.”
Gerry Barrett of Edward Capital said: “Since being introduced to One Planet Living we have been using this holistic framework to further drive our sustainability aspirations. With a city-centre location and aiming for WELL, LEED and WIRED certification, we were sure that we had a fantastic base for creating a sustainability exemplar. Using the One Planet Living framework we identified areas where we could go even further, including working closely with both tenants and the neighbouring community to create a culture that really embraces sustainability.”
