Online session

Over ten years ago Stride Treglown set themselves the task of creating a new office in Cardiff. They wanted to push the boundaries of sustainable design and create a building which minimised energy consumption and waste. Their self-built carbon neutral office was the first in the UK to achieve BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ at design stage. But how has it performed in reality?

With ten years of energy data, Stride Treglown are now sharing the results of Treglown Court in the hope it will provide a valuable insight into building performance to those striving for Net Zero.
