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:
- EnerPHit target: Significant thermal fabric improvements were made to meet the demands of the most stringent energy standard in Europe, the main aim being to reduce the u-values whilst maintaining maximum valuable floor area
- BREEAM target: Effective management, smart materials procurement, high on-site recycling rates, improved thermal comfort and enhanced site ecology were among the most important achievements. The reduction in energy consumption by up to 85% creates a sustainable building for the future
- Efficient design: The layout was reconfigured to raise the living quality while preserving the property’s character
- Prototype: It sets a precedence and is a replicable model that can be applied to future projects
SCP worked closely with the design teams and contractor in order to steer the project sustainability goals.
The project has been shortlisted for the BREEAM Awards 2017, having achieved one of the highest scoring buildings under the ‘Residential projects’ category – 88.30% at Post Construction, setting a new standard for Cadogan’s residential refurbishments.
