28/08/2018

Centred on sustainability.

The £440m redevelopment of the Westgate Centre in Oxford was a pioneering project in a myriad of ways – not least in shaping the future of retail design and construction, along with environmental commitment and community consultation.

Getting one of the largest schemes to be delivered in Oxford in more than 20 years through planning required a collaborative and considered effort from all involved. Landsec’s ambitious whole-life carbon target was pioneering – committing to reduce the amount of carbon produced from both the centre’s construction and from its first 30 years in operation.

Our Hero Spotlight takes a look at some of the inventive engineering required to develop the UK’s most sustainable retail centre.
