We’re working with a London and Yorkshire based architectural practice with for a large mixed-use development of eight multi-storey apartment blocks. The site, in the London Borough of Brent, needed an energy strategy made to meet the requirements in the London Plan 2015 (LP2015) and achieve Part L 2013 compliance.
The London Plan requires developments to achieve 35% over 2013 regulations, and when that is not possible, stipulates the developers make up for the shortfall via a monetary payment to the relevant borough.
To achieve the requirement and avoid making a payment, the site uses a fabric with Combined Heat and Power (CHP) and solar photovoltaic panels (PV):
First, the fabric of the building is improved far over the benchmark specified under the 2013 regulations. Utilizing the ‘fabric first’ approach outlined by The Zero Carbon Hub (the former advisory body to the government and construction industry), the fabric of the building is roughly half of the benchmark specified in Part L 2013.
As no existing or planned district heating systems are in the area of the planned development and the development is mixed-use, the site utilises CHP/boiler plant for a third of its space heating demand to ensure it supplies energy efficiently.
Finally, as the client has extensive experience of successfully integrating PV, to help meet the carbon reduction requirement, our consultants specified a small array of panels across the site.
