126 Pavilion Rd_NLA_Shortlisted

126 Pavilion Road has been shortlisted in the ‘Homes’ category in the New London Awards 2018.

It is the first EnerPHit project built for Cadogan Estates, dispelling the misconception that energy efficiency in its highest form is only achievable in new-build properties.

Built in the 1870s, this stable house is one of the oldest homes in the UK to comply with the EnerPHit standard and be certified as BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ at practical completion whilst preserving much of its original fabric.

More details about the project can be found here.

The winners will be announced at the NLA Annual Lunch 2018, taking place on Wednesday 4th July at the Guildhall. More details here.

Waugh Thistleton Architects are hosting a discussion on the ‘Zero Carbon Myth’ for Green Sky Thinking 2018 on 17th May. Simon Sturgis will be moderating the debate and panelists will include Natalia Ford of UKGBC and Sarah Halpin from Ramboll.

‘Year on year, the requirements to limit energy use, and therefore to limit carbon emissions, have been tightened. The Mayor now includes a ‘zero carbon’ requirement in the London Plan but, what does zero carbon actually mean?’
