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.
SCP’s innovative approach focused on a sequence of four main objectives:
SCP worked closely with the design teams and contractor in order to steer the project sustainability goals.
BREEAM was selected as the most robust and well-known certification system to ensure best environmental practice was incorporated into the scheme. It provided the opportunity to create a highly desirable and efficient property in an attractive location on the Estate which will meet the market demand for larger and more energy efficient properties with improved thermal comfort and air quality, better sound proofing and lower energy bills.
The project achieved one of the highest scoring buildings under the ‘Residential projects’ category – 88.30% as built, setting a new standard for Cadogan’s residential refurbishments. It has also won the BREEAM Awards 2018 under the ‘Homes – Post Construction’ category for its outstanding achievements.
