Cadworks™ is the first Net Zero Carbon in operation office building in Scotland, and one of the most sustainable buildings in the UK. It has been designed with the health and wellbeing of the occupier front of mind, but we are equally passionate about improving the wellbeing of the wider community.

The building was purchased as a prime development site in the CBD of this large, regional market. The in-place planning permission was significantly amended, most notably to incorporate our Responsible Real Estate vision into the existing design, producing a high-quality sustainable office space. Two levels of underground car parking were replaced with a single level of cycling infrastructure, including Scotland’s first cycle-in ramp. The building uses cement replacement concrete, recycled steel and glass, and Airlite paint that eats up greenhouse gasses. Fossil fuels were removed from the plans, creating an all-electric building.

The resulting Grade A, 10-storey office building has received many accolades and awards, including being named as the UK’s Most Innovative by the BCO in 2022.  It is certified BREEAM Excellent, Well-ready Gold, and EPC A. It has also been rated Wired Score Platinum, and holds a number of “firsts” for its best-in-class digital infrastructure.
