Griffith Wood incorporates various sustainability features such as green roofs, underground attenuation tanks for space-saving, permeable paving, landscaping around mature trees, and a new public park with wildflower beds for pollinators. Additionally, SFS panels in the concrete frame reduce carbon emissions. The development comprises A-rated apartments served by a central plant room for district heating in Blocks 2-7 and Exhaust Air Heat Pumps (EAHP) in Block 1. It also offers electrical car charging points with remote monitoring and future expansion provisions.
During Griffith Wood's development, innovative methods included 3D BIM models for precise service coordination, off-site prefabrication of heating pipework, precast structural elements, and off-site bathroom pods for consistency and safety. Non-load-bearing Light Gauge Steel panels reduced carbon and saved time. Standardised apartment layouts streamlined construction, and Layher scaffolding facilitated efficient site logistics.
