The Walpole is a new £5.8m five-storey student accommodation development comprising 87 rooms with associated communal spaces.

The development provides high-quality accommodation for the increasing student population around Goldsmiths. In our capacity as BREEAM advisors and assessors, we worked with the team to achieve the required Excellent rating. A gas-fired CHP system and an extensive photovoltaic array were installed to provide low carbon electricity for the development, as part of our work preparing the London Plan energy statement. A careful design was required to maximise the use of space on the small site.
