“Ground-breaking” net-zero London office development given the green light

Quadrum, the global real estate development, investment management and advisory group, has appointed BAM Construction to deliver its sustainable office redevelopment at 11 Belgrave Road, London.

The scheme is the first in the UK to achieve an Excellent 5.5-star NABERS design-reviewed target rating for building efficiency and one of only three in the country to be pre-certified.

The project has been designed by Eric Parry Architects in conjunction with landscape architects Gillespies. When complete in Q4 of 2023, it will transform the existing site into 108,000 sq. ft of net zero carbon office accommodation.

11 Belgrave includes 14,000 sq ft of communal spaces and best-in-class facilities, including a 3,300 sq ft café and 4,600 sq ft gym. In addition, 13,000 sq ft of green space will be “seamlessly woven” throughout. There will be storage for 178 bikes, 5-star spa-style changing rooms with 19 showers, and 177 smart lockers.

11 Belgrave meets the highest sustainability and wellbeing credentials, taking its place as one of the capital’s most sustainable office buildings. Led by engineering consultancy Max Fordham, it has been designed to be net zero carbon in both construction and operation, surpassing the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge target by 38 per cent.

Ilyas Aslam, COO at Quadrum, said: “Designing the redevelopment of 11 Belgrave Road has been an exciting opportunity to provide a ground-breaking landmark office building for the next generation of occupier, focused on the highest ESG standards in an exceptional location and with wellbeing at its heart.

“To deliver the scheme, we wanted to engage with a project team that shared our vision for this development. BAM Construction is a great addition, setting its own exceptional standards in sustainability both as a contractor and as a business.”

Rod Stiles, regional director, BAM Construction London, added: “I’m very pleased to renew our partnership with Eric Parry, having worked with the practice at both Finsbury Square and Pancras Square, the latter being part of the transformation of Kings Cross. I am also delighted to be working so closely already with the Quadrum team.”
