Magnitude 314, at Magna Park Milton Keynes, is a ground-breaking logistics development that has been confirmed as the world’s first Net Zero Carbon for Construction verified building*.

Our innovative design approach to Magnitude 314 tested principles of grid-based modular systems and standardisation, to improve elevations and interiors, reduce waste, and improve ease of construction, efficiency and flexibility. The office element is designed for maximum future flexibility whilst maximising space. The design has been adopted as the new model for all future GLP projects.

As always when working with GLP, sustainability was at the forefront of both the design and construction processes. Our Thrive experts, who are GLP’s ESG consultants, worked with the design team and wider supply chain to address all carbon impacts from the buildings. The building specifications were set to maximise both efficiency and sustainability of materials, resulting in significantly lower levels of embodied carbon.  

The project followed WELL principles throughout and is rated BREEAM 2014 Excellent.
