Green light for Tellon Capital’s revised Cassiobury House scheme

Developer, Tellon Capital has secured planning consent to give Cassiobury House 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.

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 39,000 sq ft 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.

The floor plans are to be simplified around a central circulation core, which will rise up from the basement and maximise usable floor area by relocating the secondary escape stair to the rear of the building.
External landscaping will be improved to soften the appearance of the building and provide external amenity space. To the rear of the block, within the undercroft area, a communal amenity entrance will be created.
The site is located close to the Watford Junction Masterplan, which will create an exciting and vibrant quarter around the town’s main station. Watford Borough Council’s plans include new shopping facilities, new bus stops, better walking routes and a brand-new connecting bridge. The redevelopment of the tired and outdated office block will further enhance the area.

Construction is expected to begin 2023.

Amy Jones, Head of Planning, Tellon Capital LLP said:
We are excited to start work on redeveloping Cassiobury House. As a business, we are focused on prioritising ESG and revising the plans for this building aligns to these goals. We look forward to delivering this development with Stace’s support.

Simon Hugill, Partner at Stace LLP commented:
Having worked with Tellon Capital on this scheme since 2019, we are excited that the new plans have been approved and work can begin to modernise this building.

Stace LLP is providing project management and Employer’s Agent services, overseeing the planning, design, construction and handover stages. Corstorphine & Wright Architects, ICIS Design Ltd and IN2 also make up the project team.
