Taking a building designed for needs of the 1880s and making it suitable for the requirements of 2020s has been no easy task.

We are proud to say that creating a sustainable environment was at the core of the redevelopment of BAFTA 195 Piccadilly and our designers worked tirelessly to ensure the
building is as sustainable as possible.

This includes:

  • A building management system that utilises the light and heat from the rooflight structures to heat and cool the building
  • High efficiency heat pumps to deliver to only those areas in use
  • Greater levels of insulation
  • Reductions in carbon emissions
  • All systems exceeding the building regulations energy efficient benchmarks

Alongside the work done on making BAFTA 195 Piccadilly as sustainable as possible, we are proud to say that BAFTA is the home of albert, the authority on environmental sustainability for film and television, which leads a creative industry wide charge against climate change.

As a world-leading independent arts charity, BAFTA plays a vital role in finding and supporting the next generation of talent via its year-round global learning and talent development programmes, and is working to build a more inclusive industry, both in front of and behind the camera. 

The BAFTA 195 Piccadilly redevelopment is a vital investment in the future of the film, games and television industries internationally, with the building acting as the central hub for BAFTA’s activity across the globe.

The increased space, improved technology and revenue generated by the redevelopment will allow BAFTA to dramatically expand its charitable work, increasing public and industry support and engagement.

By holding your event at BAFTA 195 Piccadilly you are enabling us to expand and deliver our extensive charitable activity.
