Client: London Borough of Ealing
Programme: 20 weeks
Description: New Build
Lengard was appointed to design and build the project and to achieve low U-values to the walls, floors and roofs. This was achieved by excess insulation to the roof-space and walls, low-E Pilkington Optitherm glazing, and minimising air permeability.
An EcodanTM high-efficiency air source heat pump was used to provide background heating via under-floor heating, which also removed the need for hot surface protection to conventional radiators.
To ensure the building remains ventilated, and cool in summer, automatic damping wind-catchers were installed, which provide ventilation without the need for electricity.
