Project description: Eight x 3 and 4-bedroom homes built to Passivhaus standard
Consultant: Allen Construction Consultancy
Client: Ealing Council
Build Contractor: Bay Construct Ltd
Project Requirement: In the heart of Ealing, West London, a former car park is being transformed into a stylish development of much needed 3 and 4-bedroom properties.
Designed to meet the Mayor’s London Housing Design Guide Standards, Allen Construction Consultancy were asked to provide functional family homes, in an expanding and desirable area, which also complement the local architectural heritage.
The eight properties have been designed using the Beattie Passive Build System and being built by Bay Construct Ltd, an approved Beattie Passive contractor. They will exceed Code for Sustainable Homes Level 6, and reach new levels of sustainability, low running costs and comfort.
Paul Quinney, Director at Allen Construction Consultancy, is delighted with the project at the Ealing development. “Using Beattie Passive has ultimately given our client the opportunity to deliver a vital New Build Scheme on budget, on a challenging site, and with homes that will be highly energy efficient for residents to enjoy for years to come. The construction industry continues to move forward and Passivhaus with Modern Methods of Construction has a huge part to play in our future developments.”
