Bowling Green Street, London

The development at 1 Bowling Green Street is predominantly a residential scheme that includes a mix of nine new flats over 200 sq m of commercial space located at ground floor level. The development is built on the site of a dilapidated pub in the London Borough of Lambeth. We were appointed to provide both sustainability and structural consultancy services. Price & Myers Sustainability worked closely with the architects from the feasibility stage in developing a materials strategy for the scheme. A commitment to achieve unusually high levels of sustainability from the onset of the project as a whole led to the incorporation of cross laminated timber in the construction. This resulted in significant savings in embodied CO2 when compared to concrete or steel alternatives. The main structure of the commercial space also reuses the existing structure including parts of it rebuilt using original bricks from the pub that previously existed on the site. The building was designed to combine an energy efficient built form and thermal envelope with photovoltaic panels. In addition to developing a low carbon energy strategy for the development; we carried out a Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) assessment right from pre-assessment to post construction stage, resulting in all flats achieving a CSH Level 3 rating on completion.
