Planning granted for The Gray’s Inn Road x Clerkenwell Road development site

We are delighted to share that our project to deliver the UK's largest full timber structure and net zero carbon office building for our client Global Holdings has been given planning permission by Camden Council.

  • The UK’s largest full timber structure office building.
  •  Building outperforms the UK Green Building Council’s Net Zero Office target by over 50%.
  •  Up to 82% lower operational carbon emissions than a typical office building.Exceeds GLA and Camden policy targets for sustainability and energy efficiency.
  • 95,000 sq. ft. 8 floors of light-filled contemporary workspaces, communal rooftop garden, five landscaped terraces, restaurant, and active commuting hub.

“The main building’s full timber structure will be made from a highly sustainable glulam frame with cross-laminated timber slabs, resulting in an embodied carbon intensity much lower than that of a typical office development. Significantly, the embodied carbon rating of the building’s timber structure, combined with its high performance façade, should outperform the UK Green Building Council’s ‘Building the Case for Net Zero Office’ baseline target by over 50%. The structural embodied carbon is incredibly low, and with over 2,400TCO2e stored within the timber, the structure is effectively carbon negative during its lifetime”, advises Director Andy Heyne.
