The Forge: Landsec’s first Net Zero Carbon commercial development – designed to transform the construction industry

Thursday 15th September 2022

Theatre :  Sustainability and Circular Economy 


The Forge is the UK’s first net-zero commercial development by Landsec and the world’s first large-scale office scheme to be built using a standardised “kit of parts”.

Steelwork played a significant role where an innovative method is being used that could transform the construction industry into a leaner and greener sector.

The session will provide the audience with :
  • an overview of the project with a few learnings and outstanding achievements.
  • particular examples of innovations using metals and the collaborative approach with the supply chain to create new construction standards (P-DfMA method, Cladding)
  • a prospective discussion on imminent challenges for the construction sector and how the metals supply chain can respond to these.
