NLA Zero Carbon London features four HTA projects
The NLA Zero Carbon Report was released yesterday and five of HTA's projects have been featured in the report.
101 George Street
Developed by Tide Construction and manufactured offsite by Vision Modular Systems, 101 George Street is the world’s tallest modular residential building — rising to 44 and 38-storeys. The 136 metre development provides 546 apartments designed and built exclusively for rent for Greystar, with 109 homes offered as affordable housing. The site marks the gateway to the London Borough of Croydon’s comprehensive plans for a new ‘Cultural Quarter’ opposite East Croydon Station, and a high level of design ambition was required.
A £2.5bn regeneration project delivering high-quality homes, jobs, business opportunities and green space, Elephant Park will be one of the world’s most sustainable inner-city projects using technologies such as a net zero carbon heat network and other innovations. This flagship project has helped Lendlease set ambitious targets of being Net Zero Carbon by 2025 (scopes 1 and 2) and Absolute Zero by 2040 (scopes 1, 2 and 3). Principles of the energy hierarchy were embedded throughout, including an efficient fabric and solar panels. High sustainability standards are also maintained throughout construction, including procuring green electricity and trialling plant including an electric excavator and hybrid digger.
Little Strand, Colindale
Little Strand is part of Barnet Homes’ affordable housing programme, infilling garage court sites within a cul-de-sac surrounded by existing homes. The strategy for reducing energy use and carbon emissions follows the London Plan Energy Hierarchy. The improvement in energy performance is achieved through high fabric efficiency, good air-tightness levels, efficient building services, and air-source heat pumps.
Ravensbury (Phases 2-4)
The regeneration of this 4.5 hectare estate, built in the 1940s-50s, includes the retention of existing homes, new tree-lined streets, a swale, community rose garden, plus 201 new homes providing an increased 59 per cent affordable housing across four phases. The scheme achieves the zero carbon standard with an offset payment. Residents have been extensively engaged throughout the design process and their needs have been mapped to provide a wider mix of homes will end overcrowding, plus the provision of older persons’ flats.
Common Home – Broadfields Estate
RCKa and Barnet Homes have submitted plans for a new development project within the Broadfields Estate that will provide 100 per cent affordable housing on a low-density, suburban site in the north of the borough. Taking advantage of the Common Home model developed by RCKa, the 47 homes will be delivered across the estate using a modular construction system, with the potential for future expansion.
