SRE is delighted to announce that Alpine Place, Queensbury, London NW9, won the RICS Award for the Best Residential Project in London on 4th May 2016. SRE undertook the BREEAM New Construction 2011 (Shell and Core) Assessment on the commercial units, and Code for Sustainable Homes Assessment on the 144 residential units. BREEAM 'very good' level was achieved for the residential units, and Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4. SRE was also involved in the planning application for the site, preparing the Sustainability Statement for the London Borough of Brent Council application.
This was an exemplar site and therefore high levels of energy performance and a high quality of architectural design. The site was mixed tenure, with social rent, private rent and 5 live work units provided, with associated communal landscaping and parking areas. The site used communal heating systems (with roof mounted PV to provide on-site CO2 offset), with individual heat meters and monitors within each dwelling to show energy use and allow accurate billing.
SRE was involved from the planning stage through to site completion.
