About the Project

Planning has been secured to give Cassiobury House in Watford a new lease of life. Plans for Cassiobury House have been approved without any objections and given praise by a planning officer for the “high quality” and modern design.

The property is located opposite Watford Junction railway station, approximately 0.6 miles north of the town centre, situated on the edge of Watford’s prime business district with many large office schemes located in close proximity. The building was constructed in the late 1970s of a secondary Grade B specification and is multi-let to 2 office tenants.

Having previously received consent in early 2021 to demolish and rebuild Cassiobury House, Tellon Capital revised the scheme. New plans, which will see a retrofit to the 1970s building, will result an overall reduction in regulated CO2 emissions of 60% against the existing baseline building. This will be achieved through improvements in passive design, energy efficiency and renewable technology.

Approximately 3,623sqm net internal office floor space will be delivered along with improvements to the building’s exterior. One main clear entrance in place of multiple will provide level access, improving accessibility of the building and wayfinding. This entrance will lead to a communal reception and amenity space, serving as a central hub for office occupants.

IN2 have been appointed to carry out full MEP design for the development and to deliver a BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’.
