It is an ideal space for new and growing companies seeking a modern property in the heart of West London. Our Grand Union development achieved exemplary results in respect of our sustainable construction targets, notably by achieving a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certification, in part due to its Combined Heat and Power (CHP) installation which supplies electricity and heating to the building and the adjoining new residential complex, and the solar panels on the roof. Grand Union has an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of an A (20) which means that our customers will benefit from being located in a high performance building.
In all our development work we are conscious of the need to be considerate to our neighbours and the public and this is reflected in this development which achieved a Considerate Constructors Scheme Excellent rating and won a National Bronze Site Award. Winning a National Site Award is an exceptional achievement and recognises that our site has made a great contribution towards improving the image of construction. We recognise that the responsible procurement of building materials can improve the sustainability of our supply chain and ultimately our buildings and so we ensured that during the Grand Union development 100% of the timber used was from FSC Certified sources. We are committed to minimising the amount of site waste and are proud to state that 100% of the construction waste from the Grand Union development was diverted from landfill.
Grand Union Studios has embodied the sustainable and responsible procurement, development and construction principles that we are seeking to embed into all of our developments through our challenging sustainability construction targets.
The Grand Union site lies within an "Area for Regeneration" allocated by the London Plan. Historically, the site used to be a single storey light industrial park and Workspace identified that it was under-utilised due to out of date employment accommodation and the extreme low density in relation to surrounding development. Workspace obtained mixed-use planning permission and built the 6 storey mixed use building providing commercial, retail and residential floor space, with parking and landscaping. The provision of these uses within the development create a truly sustainable mixed use scheme which enables people to live, work and shop in one location.
