The Devon’s Road redevelopment project is located on the former Bow Industrial Park, and has been built over three phases and when finished in 2019 will provide a total of 384 new homes, 10 new commercial units, as well as community play areas. Darren Evans Assessments has worked closely with Galliford Try for the last 10 years and we have collaborated with Galliford Try on the energy assessment and sustainability compliance aspects of this development in relation to both residential and commercial aspects since 2013.
One of the overarching services that we have provided for the scheme as it has developed has been acting in the role of BREEAM assessor. We have assessed all the new commercial development that has been completed over the 3 phases providing the following BREEAM related services:
- BREEAM assessor for both 2011 and 2014 regulations
- BREEAM Accredited professional
- Ecology support and advice
- SAP Calculations for the residential elements of the project
- SBEM Calculations for the new commercial units
- IMPACT assessment to measure & reduce the buildings environmental impact
- Thermal Modelling to CIBSE Guide TM52 & TM59
- Green Lease Agreement
- Low Zero Carbon Report advising on the suitability of renewable technologies on site
- Energy and sustainability Reports to sign off planning and sustainability criteria
Throughout the project we have remained up to date and informed as Part L and BREEAM regulations have changed to ensure that we are providing correct and relevant guidance. We have worked closely with all members of a shifting design team across all 3 phases to coordinate the receipt of required technical specifications in line with the BRE’s requirements incorporating leading design team meetings and site inspections. We have been able to advise on required alterations to the renewable and site wide heating and hot water provision to ensure provision is suitable for the needs of the residential and commercial property on site as well as in line with planning requirements.
Matthew from Galliford Try said the following about the service that we provided “Having worked with Darren Evans over the last 4 years I can only say positive things about them, they are helpful, provide professional tailored reports in a timely manner and offer great support to our construction site teams.”
We have a very experienced team of domestic, commercial and BREEAM assessors and we would be happy to hear about your project and how we can help.
