24 Jan Sustainability at its best
With sustainability a hot topic for 2019, the Crystal offers the most technologically advanced and sustainable event space in London, with seven fully equipped multi-purpose meeting rooms boasting panoramic views over the Royal Victoria Docks.
The Crystal is an all-electric building that uses solar power and a ground source heat pump to generate its own energy. It showcases state-of-the-art technologies to make buildings more efficient and profiles Siemens’ Environmental Portfolio. The Crystal incorporates rainwater harvesting, black water treatment, solar heating and automated building management systems.
The Crystal houses an auditorium that seats up to 270 people in theatre, and hosts seven unique meeting rooms, all of which can be laid out with various seating arrangements to suit every need.
And possibly the most intriguing space and USP for the venue is the Crystal urban planning exhibition. Featuring interactive exhibits, films, and animations, guests can explore a range of issues including city trends, urban planning, smart buildings, safety and security, energy, water, healthy lifestyles, environment, and mobility. The urban planning exhibition also features case studies from cities around the world sharing innovative ideas, and the ‘Future Life’ theatre invites you to imagine how. This space can also be hired out for events and is a great space for an internal exhibition.
