Mainer Associates were appointed to undertake an Energy & Sustainability Statement for the proposed refurbishment and extension of Britannia Row, Islington, London. The project includes the refurbishment and remodelling of the existing commercial space with the inclusion of nine new residential apartments.
In addition to undertaking a full Dynamic Thermal Model of the development to assist with the Energy Statement, we undertook Code for Sustainable Homes pre-assessments and overheating analysis to satisfy the council’s requirements.
Furthermore, the Council were requiring significant carbon offsetting payments. We were able to engineer scenarios whereby these payments could be reduced dramatically and even eradicated completely.
We are looking forward to working with the client during the detailed design stages in 2016 as the developer looks to maximise the opportunity of improved market conditions.
