Overview

Holbein Gardens is an office development off Sloane Square in Belgravia, London SW1.

Grosvenor will refurbish and extend the building to create 28,000 sq ft of high quality, flexible and sustainable workspace.

The designs by architect Barr Gazetas focus on retaining the existing 5 storey structure, re-use of materials and introduction of extensive greening will result in one of London’s most sustainable office buildings.

Sustainability

An early whole life carbon assessment minimised upfront embodied carbon, means the development will meet the LETI Pioneer Project embodied carbon target of 500kgCO2/m2.

This has been achieved through the façade retention and trialling new low embodied carbon products including CEMFREE Concrete, Thermalite aircrete blockwork and reclaimed raised access flooring. Opportunities to recycle steel are being explored and cross-laminated timber will be used in the creation of the extension.

The in-use energy efficiency of the all-electric scheme will be enhanced through effective lighting and mechanical equipment, on-site renewable energy generation, blue roofs and sustainable urban drainage systems.

Grosvenor’s goal for all managed buildings is to be net zero operational carbon by 2030 and to increase biodiversity in Mayfair and Belgravia.

Grosvenor is targeting BREEAM Outstanding, WELL Gold and Wired Score Gold certifications for the completed project.
