A BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment (DR) Scheme on an historic building in the centre of London comprising six units, including a penthouse apartment. Converted from an old office for SOHO Housing the site was required to achieve high levels of energy efficiency, and BREEAM ‘Excellent’ in line with Local planning Policy. SRE undertook detailed energy modelling on the scheme to ensure Building Regulation compliance and lead the BREEAM DR process. Through continuous consultation throughout the design and construction phases, and in support of a very proactive construction team, SRE was able to certify the dwellings to a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standard and the scheme was shortlisted for a BREEAM award in 2015.

'SRE made an invaluable contribution towards the successful delivery of BREEAM 'Excellent' for our refurbishment site in central Camden. Without their expertise we would not have been able to deliver the requirements set by the Local Authority. SRE provided clear, timely and highly constructive guidance.'
