PDP London partnering with Octavia, Eight Associates and Ryder Strategy, were the winners for this Government organised competition to produce 87 exemplar, very low energy, retrofit projects.
An 80% carbon emission reduction was achieved with very low energy demand together with the omission of the conventional gas energy source. The heating energy demand requirements were reduced thanks to the implementation of PassivHaus principles, the installation of a below ground labyrinth and the complete elimination of cold bridges. Hot water is produced by means of three solar panels.
