Case Study

Chancery Lane, London

Chancery Lane, WPS Compliance

Project Information

The Chancery Lane project commenced in August 2015 and is scheduled to complete October 2018. The project involves the demolition of the existing building at Chancery Lane and redevelopment behind the retained façade of The Public House to provide a basement plus 8 storey building comprising a mix of offices at part basement and part ground floor levels, Apart’ Hotel at part basement and part ground floor and first to seventh floor levels. The need to satisfy stringent planning constraints led to our client retaining WPS as consultants to assist with achieving the required BREEAM accreditation, Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) attainment, the planning 106 Agreement conditions and achieving Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) aspects.

Functions undertaken

WPS started with the Pre-demolition Audit, feeding the results into the Site Waste Management Plan , (SWMP) (using WPS’s own software tool, WastePlan upgraded to SitePlan), thereby contributing to BREEAM Wst01, planning, CCS and CSR. WPS then prepared the Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) and the Noise, Dust and Vibration Plan (NDV) to satisfy planning conditions. For the duration of the project WPS will be managing the Water, Energy and Carbon Plans, monitoring site impacts, to achieve BREEAM credits (Man03), CCS points and CSR. Relating to procurement, WPS developed the Sustainable Procurement Policy and is managing the Local Labour and Procurement Plans for ‘the City’ as well as the Sustainable Procurement Plan for BREEAM credits, CCS points and CSR. Ongoing FORS and CLOCS compliance monitoring is supervised by WPS to satisfy ‘the City’, contribute to CCS points and help with CSR and the Operational Waste Audit carried out by WPS achieved the BREEAM Wst03 credit. Logistics, Traffic, Transport and Green Travel Plans contribute to BREEAM (Tra05 & Man03), CCS and CSR. The Environmental Management System (EMS) prepared to BS standard BS8555:2003, phase 4 contributes to BREEAM (Man03), CCS and CSR. In addition to the above contributions assisting with CCS points, WPS provides further Considerate Constructors Scheme consultancy to contribute towards points for the following sections:

Appearance, Community,

Environment, Workforce,

Innovation and Site Specific.



WPS ensured that the necessary BREEAM credits were achieved for the required excellent standard. All planning conditions and s106 conditions are in the final stages of being satisfied, as are the local requirements of ‘the City’. The final CCS inspection achieved 39 points.
