An innovative air source heat pump solution was required to reduce building carbon emissions, says Jodi Willis of energy and sustainability company MTT
MTT were instructed by our client, a commercial developer specialising in student accommodation, to design the MEP building services on a 400 bedroom new build development in London.
Our appointment was also to develop an energy strategy to be submitted to the Local Authority as part of the planning proposals demonstrating how the sustainability targets set within the Local Plan and emerging Local Development Framework could be met.
Initial proposals were to provide air source heating to the entire development with combined heat and power addressing the baseline domestic hot water loads with a top up from biomass fired boilers in order to meet the carbon emissions savings and also provide a proportion of renewables integration that approaches that of the London Plan target of 20 per cent.
