Briggs & Forrester Special Projects secures net zero carbon Holbein Gardens project

Briggs & Forrester Special Projects have secured the mechanical, electrical and public health services package on Holbein Gardens in London for Blenheim House Construction.

The project is a redevelopment and one storey extension of a 1980s office building off Sloane Square, creating a 25,000 sq ft modern workplace constructed within the UKGBC’s net zero carbon buildings framework.

The build will be Grosvenor’s first net zero carbon office development with the all-electric scheme enhanced through effective lighting and mechanical equipment, on-site renewable energy generation, blue roofs and sustainable urban drainage systems.

All contractors on the project have been challenged to help Grosvenor deliver against its goals of net zero carbon, zero waste and a significant biodiversity gain with zero waste being sent to landfill and strip out waste will be traded on re-use marketplace Globe Chain.

Holbein Gardens is helping drive forward industry knowledge on delivering low carbon buildings acting as a LETI Pioneer Project and aligned to NABERS methodology with the project targeting BREEAM Outstanding, WELL Gold and Wired Score Gold certifications. The MEP package is expected to complete in autumn 2022.
