Resilient London: confronting climate change
Part of the wider Kings Cross regeneration area, W3 is a community building, whose
structure and main facades are all made from engineered timber. A combination
of sustainably sourced building materials (both structure and facade are mainly
engineered timber), passive design features, highly efficient building services and
a low carbon centralised energy supply will ensure that W3 will have a significantly
reduced carbon footprint, both in production and in use. A green roof, with a mix of
bird and bat boxes will establish space for biodiversity.
