Having agreed a community heating strategy for the site at planning stage, we have been helping to deliver the Energy Centre and heat network. This has involved the preparation of a District Heating Masterplan, which set the strategic principles, including the innovative use of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) to reduce the NOx emissions of the CHP by 95%.
We also assisted St George in the tendering of a pioneering Design, Build, Operate and Maintain contract for the Energy Centre and heat network. This has allowed operational experience to be built-into the design, hence avoiding over-design and maximising operational efficiency. We have also worked with the design team on The Pinnacle – the centrepiece of the development – to balance the provision of high levels of natural light from full-height glazing with a design that minimises the risk of summer overheating.
We ensured that St George were able to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3 for the dwellings and BREEAM Very Good for all commercial units.
