Lench’s Trust

Modern eco-office for Lench’s Trust

One of Birmingham’s oldest charities, Lench’s Trust, chooses a modern, modular eco-office with Green Unit

When the almshouse charity, Lench’s Trust, required a new head office in Birmingham, they placed sustainability and building performance high on their wish list.

Working with Green Unit, they commissioned a 130sqm modular eco-building.

Designed bespoke for Lench’s Trust

The brief to Green Unit was for an open-plan office with a kitchenette, WCs, a large boardroom style meeting room, and a partitioned CEO’s office at one end.

Green Unit designed custom furniture and storage to fit within the building’s curved walls to take advantage of the additional useable space available from the building’s curved design.

The ARC building is sited on a strip of land adjacent to one of the charity’s almshouses, William LenchCourt, and nestles beautifully into the landscape.

We are very impressed by the building –it surpasses all our expectations.
