Our Work: We have been involved in this flagship development since 2011. We have supported the design and construction team by advising on the most effective way to comply with London Plan energy policies, exceed Building Regulations CO2 reduction targets and achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3.
The building is of very high quality, designed with stone, glass and laser-cut metal filigree façade making the construction unique. Homes are heated from a highly efficient Combined Heat and Power (CHP) engine stored in the basement plant room, alongside provision for significant cycle storage. Apartments are designed with sustainable principles and pleasant living in mind, including Lifetime Homes standards, provision of terraces/balconies, best practice sound insulation and reduced water consumption.
