The scheme forms the first part of the major redevelopment of the Gallions Reach area, providing the first 800 dwellings of a proposed 2000 dwelling master plan.
Royal Albert Wharf (previously known as Great Eastern Quays) included residential and commercial use built over 2 phases. The development includes a community heating system fed from an energy centre constructed during phase 1 designed to supply heating and hot water for the entire master plan. The energy centre adopted by a ESCo (Energy Service Company). The development is designed to comply with Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 (Phase 1 only) and BREEAM Very Good and the enhanced energy requirements of the London Plan.
We have worked closely with Notting Hill Housing during the entire development timeline starting with the feasibility stage. Including early liaison with statutory authorities including UKPN to ensure at critical onsite infrastructure can remain live during the build contract and ensure that suitable provision was included within the master plans to supply the development.
We assisted the procurement team in the procurement process of the ESCo and gave technical advice on the ‘smart billing’ systems on offer.
Following completion of Energy Strategies and successful planning applications we produced performance specifications / briefs with the client for tender purposes under a JCT Design and Build Contract.
