Glasgow's first net zero office building opens

2nd Dec 2021


Glasgow's Cadworks sustainable office development, the first net zero office building in Glasgow city centre, has been launched after being completed to coincide with COP26.

The Grade A office on Cadogan Street covers 94,000 sq. ft. and includes extensive facilities for the growing number of Glasgow cyclists including the city's first cycle-in access ramp, and first private fleet of Swifty Scooters that tenants can use for free.

Cadworks is the city’s first office building that is net zero carbon in operation, an achievement made possible through extensive innovations in building materials, on-site electricity generation via solar panels, and high efficiency all-electric heating and cooling systems. Rated BREEAM Excellent and EPC A, the building uses no fossil fuels and 100% of waste will be diverted from landfill.

The building is also the first Glasgow office development to use a pioneering paint, Airlite, that removes greenhouse gases from the air and has been proven to kill 99% of viruses. This has helped the building receive a Gold AirScore accreditation for its excellent indoor air quality.  The high-tech specification includes the city’s best digital infrastructure and Cadworks has been rated ‘Platinum’ by WiredScore.
