Tour of The Forge

15 January 2024 , The Forge, 105 Sumner Street, London, SE1 9HZ Add to calendar

Join us for a tour to the Bronze building of The Forge which will be hosted by Landsec.

The Forge is the UK’s first net zero carbon office and featured in BUILDOFFSITE’s free guidance on Offsite construction – concept design and delivery (X538).

The Forge was built using the platform approach to design for manufacture and assembly (P-DfMA).

Using these techniques has contributed to a circa 39% reduction to date in embodied Carbon A1-A5 reduction compared to the same building built traditionally. The developer has also saved 178 tonnes in steel by using the platform approach – that’s the equivalent of just under 13.5 London double-decker buses in weight.

Places on the tour are limited, and available to BOS and CIRIA members only.
