First net zero office starts on site

Our UK property business has started on site with its first net zero carbon office development.

Holbein Gardens, an extension and refurbishment of a 1980s office building, will set a new benchmark for transforming outdated buildings into exemplary zero carbon workspaces.

This was achieved by setting environmental performance as a success factor for the project from its inception.

Materials innovation including the recycling of steel from other Grosvenor projects, the use of cross laminated timber and a zero waste to landfill policy will reduce embodied carbon during construction.

On completion, the all-electric building will be run sustainably, with power generated through on site solar panels and rainwater captured and reused on site. Significant greening and landscaping will also improve local biodiversity and aid wellbeing of future occupiers.
