Sophie Street approached Whitbread plc and Greengage when researching the hub, St Martins Lane, as part of the Construction and Sustainability module, for her MSc in Real Estate, at Oxford Brookes University.
Sophie was tasked with compiling a case study on a “green” building, and chose the hub in Covent Garden due to its BREEAM rating amongst many other things.
Sophie interviewed Geoff Cook (Senior Project and Programme Manager, Whitbread Hotels & Restaurants) and Ruth Geeson (Associate Partner, Greengage) who were able to provided background and context to the numerous sustainability features and the decision making process behind these.
Sophie achieved a distinction for her project, which was one of the highest scoring in her class.
