Esso Building, Merrick Road, Southall, London
BREEAM Very Good (Commercial Space)
This is a new build project for a development in Southall, London for Redrow Homes. The scheme provides 401 Build to Rent homes, 18,116 sq ft of office space, 3,541 sq ft of flexible commercial floorspace, 5,253 sq ft of internal residents’ amenity and over 17,000 sq ft of external space.
The height itself presented challenges for the design team, as well as the demands of the London Plan for a 35% reduction of CO2 emissions.
Method were responsible for the full detailed M&E design for the entire building, as well as BREEAM, the Energy Statement and Thermal Modelling. The design includes district heating connection to the adjacent Malgavita CHP energy centre to provide heating and hot water throughout.
