2 Copper Square

Brent Cross Town
2022 -

2 Copper Square will create office space alongside a range of other uses in Brent Cross Town – the major new mixed-use neighbourhood spanning over 180-acres in the London Borough of Barnet. 

Designed with a full timber structural frame, 2 Copper Square is expected to be the largest full timber project in the UK. Additionally, the building sets industry-leading targets for upfront carbon offsetting and sustainability aspirations, and will be credited under BREEAM, NABERS and SmartScore. 

The expectation is that by incorporating a full timber structure and by using off site manufacturing and construction methods, the building will have a low embodied carbon rating and be fully net-zero, in line with Related Argent’s ambitions for Brent Cross Town to be a fully net-zero carbon town.


In addition to 17,258 sq. m. of much needed flexible office space, the nine-storey building will enhance the public realm with a new pedestrianised colonnade and active frontages along Copper Square and Claremont Place that will lead to retail and leisure space on the lower floors.

As the gateway to the wider site from the station, it will weave the existing and new neighbourhoods together whilst acting as a transition point from residential to commercial areas. It is set to achieve a biodiversity net gain of 20%. To support user health and wellbeing, it will provide plentiful outdoor green space overlooking Claremont Park through demised terraces and a communal terrace on the top floor.
