Timber Square – pioneering zero carbon office development


Wednesday 28 April 2021
10:00 - 11:00

A Hoare Lea event, hosted by NLA, discussing Timber Square which has planning approval and will be a net zero carbon scheme, a decade ahead of the UK Green Building Council’s target for all new developments to be net zero carbon.
Timber Square, an exemplar sustainable development by Landsec at Lavington Street in Southwark, will comprise two new office buildings and landscaped public realm. Landsec is targeting a range of ambitious sustainability commitments, including retaining a quarter of the existing building and using natural and recycled materials. The project is also adopting Design for Performance principles and targeting very low energy use in operation. Timber Square aims to be the largest commercial development in the UK to use cross-laminated timber (CLT). 

This event will provide an overview of the project vision and design principles from Landsec and the project team.
