Refurb of seven storey, Grade II listed office to provide 70,000 sq ft of new offices to Cat A standard
The refurbishment of Grove House was our first project for the Low Carbon Workplace (LCW), which provides high-quality office accommodation with reduced carbon, both embedded and in-use.
Our highly skilled energy efficiency know-how turned a pre-war office block into a highly sustainable and efficient work space that is EPC rated, increasing the value to the property owner.
Delivering low carbon emissions at Grove House was based on four key areas:
We've applied many of the principles at Grove House to another key LCW project, Mansel Court, although solutions to the building fabric and environmental control are tailored to each particular building.
Grove House was one of the first completed by LCW, which aims to tackle sustainability challenge of reworking post-war building stock to meet carbon reduction targets within the constraints of the speculative office letting market.
The excellentrevitalized office space meant it quickly had tenants, such as investment manager Winton Capital Management.
The project is one of the first commissions from the Low Carbon Workplace, a partnership between Stanhope, Threadneedle and the Carbon Trust.
The Low Carbon Workplace Partnership’s approach to delivering low in-use carbon emissions focuses on four key areas.
