Excellent rated BREEAM multi-use development

Overview:

The High Road Development project comprised of a five-storey multi-use development in Greater London, consisting of four ground floor commercial units and sixty residential units occupying the remaining floors.

Our Solution:

Waldeck were assigned to provide the client with energy strategy proposals to ensure an ‘excellent’ BREEAM and ‘Code for Sustainable Homes’ rating. Strategies modelled include the use of high efficiency lighting, daylighting and presence control, glazing options including solar control methods, natural ventilation vs mechanical vent strategies, central community heating systems and incorporation of renewable technologies including biomass and PV.

The Results:

Waldeck worked closely with the client to identify their management procedures for metering and charging for energy use from tenants. We identified the best use of low and zero carbon technologies energy generation on site, to suit both the tenants and the client as landlord for the build.
