The Result

They are being provided with a new 3 storey state of the art facility in the heart of Walthamstow to assist in their mission of transforming the lives of young people. As Farrans Construction’ framework Environmental Advisor for 2 mid-value ESFA batches, we undertook London Plan and daylight studies for Planning and also sat on the design team to steer the building form towards compliance with daylighting and overheating requirements of the new Output Specification. The strategy was delivered within the ESFA project budget with a lightweight construction and single sided daylighting and ventilation. Compliance with the London Plan was achieved with a 50kW PV array, a fabric first strategy and efficient lighting systems.
