High House Artists Studios, Essex

From the pre-planning stage, Price & Myers Sustainability provided sustainability consultancy for a new build development of affordable artist's studios as part of the High House Production Park in Purfleet, Essex. Working closely with the design team, we were able to guide the project right from the early stages of the design and ensure that sustainable principles and actions were incorporated into the project, minimising the additional cost associated with achieving a BREEAM 2011 'Very Good' rating. The building performs well in the Management, Materials and Pollution sections of the scheme as a result of consideration for materials use, responsible sourcing and the contractor's approach to sustainable actions during construction. The BREEAM 'Very Good' rating was awarded mainly due to the majority of issues being embedded into the design, minimising the risk of losing credits from the design stage to construction.
