Shaw Contract Group’s new London showroom, Hub 33, has achieved Silver certification from Ska Rating, the environmental assessment tool for sustainable fit-outs within the UK.

The tool helps provide accurate measures of sustainable impact to support the environmental management system.
Ska Rating complements other labelling methods such as BREEAM and LEED, and can be used in conjunction with other ‘whole’ building labels. Ska Rating for Offices comprises 104 good practice measures across Energy & CO2, Waste, Water, Pollution, Transport, Materials and Wellbeing, which are used to rank a space as Gold, Silver or Bronze.
