We are delighted that our Timber Square project for Landsec is on track to be the first in the UK to achieve a five-star NABERS Energy Rating when operative. The 370,000sqft Bennetts Associates designed scheme comprises two office buildings with amenity spaces, and is located in the London Borough of Southwark. The NABERS UK rating is a Design for Performance methodology, based upon a collaboration between NABERS Australia and the Better Buildings Partnership with scheme administrator BRE.
This is a project of many firsts. Alongside a commitment to reduced operational use, the scheme design has implemented multiple carbon saving initiatives from reinventing the existing Print Building structure to incorporating use of a hybrid steel and CLT frame. This is one of the UK’s first large commercial developments to do so, with the result of this being a project equating to around half the embodied carbon of a typical London office.
