The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has granted planning consent for 115,000 sq ft of new high quality office space on a constrained site located adjacent to the London Undergrond Lines. The existing four storey office block and basements will be replaced with a new ground plus 5 floor buildings with gym, cycling and ancillary uses in the basement levels.

The project is targeting net-zero carbon in construction and operation, BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ WELL Certified ‘Gold’, WiredScore ‘Platinum’ and a 4.5 to 5-star NABERS UK rating. The building will use air source heat pumps to meet the heating and cooling demands and will include a blue-roof rainwater attenuation system, photovoltaic panels, and green roofs to enhance the development’s biodiversity credentials.

The project is currently mid-way through Stage 3 with works being undertaken in Revit. The embodied carbon analysis has assessed different structural options to show the impact before a decision was taken. All other sustainability aspects including Design for Performance/NABERS UK are progressing well alongside the team.
