Landsec unveils plans for net zero carbon building in ‘UK first’

It supports the property developer’s goal to become a net zero carbon business by 2030

Property developer Landsec has unveiled plans for what it hopes will be the UK's first net zero carbon commercial building.

The Forge, previously known as 105 Summer Street, is a 139,000 square feet office development in London and will be built and operated in line with the UK Green Building Council's (UKGBC) net zero carbon buildings framework and associated with energy performance targets.

Landsec says there is currently no building in the UK that has been verified in line with UKGBC's framework that is net zero carbon during both construction and operation.
