UK’s first net-zero commercial development

Property developer Landsec is progressing plans for the UK’s first net-zero commercial building. Previously known as 105 Sumner St, the Forge will be a 139,000 sq ft office development in Southwark set behind Tate Modern and will be constructed and operated in line with the UK Green Building Council’s (UKGBC) net-zero carbon buildings framework and associated energy performance targets.

Mark Allan, CEO of Landsec, said: “Our target is to be a net-zero carbon business by 2030. That means we have to start making changes to the way we do things now. We know that property companies have a vital role to play in addressing the climate emergency. We’re clear, therefore, that our sustainability strategy must be deeply embedded in our development programme and we will continue to be ambitious in our approach.”
