Client: London Borough of Enfield
Our team worked with main contractor Neilcott Construction to carry out the MEP design for two simultaneous projects in Edmonton providing family homes and later living flats for local people. Newstead House comprises 11No. 3-bedroom houses and 1No. 2-bedroom house, partly funded by the GLA Affordable Homes Programme 2016 to 2023-Homes for Londoners. Maldon Road provides 9No. 1-bedroom and 1No. 2-bedroom later living flats for the local community.
BSE3D worked closely with the design team and client to assess the risk of overheating in each dwelling. This assessment was carried out in line with TM59, the industry standard CIBSE documentation used to assess overheating risk in homes. The assessment determined there was risk overheating some properties, and our experienced team worked with the architects to introduce mitigation measures to reduce the risk.
Following the overheating assessment, the MEP design was progressed. All dwellings benefitted from thermally efficient, low U Values and efficient building services including LED lighting and solar photovoltaic panels for each property. In addition to MEP design services, BSE3D provided energy assessment services, carrying out both the design stage and As Built SAP and EPC assessments. Following the energy efficiency measures implemented across the construction, every property in the project achieved an efficient B rated EPC upon construction.
