    Kingston Barge Dock Site - harnessing the warmth of the Thames

    SRE is currently working on an exciting new project that will take advantage of the UK’s first Open Water Heat Pump. 

    NHP Developments, run by Mike Spenser-Morris acquired the site of Kingston Power Station in 1999, on the banks of the River Thames.  A 137 apartment block and 142 room hotel were constructed on the site and completed in 2014.  The eco-friendly development is harnessing the energy for its heating and hot water directly from the Thames in a pioneering community heating system.

    SRE is currently working on the SBEM modelling and energy statement for a further new development forming part of the same site which will consist of an upmarket restaurant, associated services and 9 flats above. This new development will connect to the water source heat pump system.

    For further information on this or other similar projects, please contact SRE.

    Edgley Design wins RIBA award for Godson Street, Islington

    We are delighted to announce that one of SRE's recent collaborations with Edgley Design won a RIBA award.  Ben Kirk, Associate, Edgley Design says of our involvement:

    'SRE acted as sustainability consultants on our 1,000 sqm new build mixed-use development in Islington, London, which recently won a RIBA London Award.  The scheme had to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5 to discharge a planning condition.  SRE helped the scheme achieve this accreditation comfortably, a considerable achievement considering the tight urban nature of the plot.  SRE were positive, encouraging, had a can-do attitude to problem solving and were always willing to offer advice on and develop with us new technologies and strategies which were non-standard.  Their attitude and service positively contributed to our project being considered an award winning scheme.  We would highly recommend SRE to other Architects and Clients.'

    We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Edgley Design on their latest award.
