PLP has committed to deliver all speculative builds to the UK Green Building Council’s (UKGBC) Carbon Net Zero standard.
To achieve Carbon Net Zero standard, PLP and its consultants assess carbon emissions from construction through Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of materials and products and reduces these emissions through the inclusion of materials with a lower carbon footprint. PLP mitigates remaining construction carbon emissions to net zero by funding high quality carbon offset projects, enabling us to achieve CarbonNeutral® development certification through The CarbonNeutral Protocol.
Our speculative builds are also designed to promote energy efficient and low carbon operation, with inclusion of solar photovoltaics, air source heat pumps and 100% LED lighting contributing to Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) ratings of A(15) or better.
Further design enhancements including roof strengthening and extended underground ducting enable our occupiers to install additional solar photovoltaics and battery storage facilities in the future, to further enhance operational building performance.
Providing Carbon Net Zero developments enables occupiers to transition to and maintain Carbon Net Zero operations without expensive alterations to their facility.
