11 Belgrave Road, London Victoria by Quadrum Global with BAM

Constructing Excellence

Quadrum Global, with contractor BAM, has delivered an ambitious redevelopment project in Victoria in central London, transforming a tired 1950s structure into a 150,000 sq. ft net zero workplace.

The scheme, at 11 Belgrave Road, offers 108,000 sq. ft of Grade A office space, 14,000 sq. ft of communal areas and best-in-class amenities, including an on-site café and gym, and 13,000 sq. ft of green space, with a 2,600 sq. ft walled garden, terraces and a rooftop platform with panoramic views over London.

11 Belgrave became the UK’s first building to attain a NABERS UK design-reviewed 5.5 Star target rating and, with a BREEAM Outstanding rating, is in the top 1% of BREEAM assessed buildings.

Significant effort was directed to ensuring positive climate impact, in alignment with Quadrum’s vision. This was led by BAM and a dedicated sustainability champion on site, supported by the regional and central sustainability team. The project team was encouraged to propose options to improve sustainability and reduce carbon. This included construction materials, including PT concrete, hemp blocks instead of breeze blocks (the first such offering in any office development), and high-grade Northern European oak timber. The building owners personally joined the transport taking waste materials from demolition to the recycling centre.

Three Winning Facts:
  1. Net zero carbon in design, construction and operation
  2. Using innovative, sustainable materials and technology to reduce carbon – extending the building’s life by 10+ years
  3. 35% of existing structure retained (c.100% recycling of all demolished materials, except asbestos)
