A three-storey hybrid steel and cross laminated timber (CLT) frame structure, delivering 77,000 sq ft majority open plan accommodation.
The scheme also includes the construction of an adjacent circular pavilion dining building. This single-storey structure incorporates a large commercial kitchen and provides accommodation for circa 450 covers.
Sky’s new innovation centre will be delivered with a significant focus on driving down embodied carbon, reducing waste through prefabrication and efficient design, and ensuring materials are responsibly sourced. One hundred percent of construction waste will be diverted from landfill, and ISG will be working alongside the supply chain to eliminate single-use plastic packaging during the construction phase. This is all part of Sky’s commitment to become Net Zero Carbon by 2030, two decades before the Government’s target.
On arrival, all visitors will receive an induction before a presentation on the history of the project. Visitors will then be provided with PPE and escorted around the project by a member of the construction team where they can see first-hand the works that are taking place behind the scenes.
Information on Open Doors 2022 will be released shortly
