The development of 100-108 Lower Marsh involved the demolition of nine two-storey buildings and the construction of a 66 bedroom hotel-led mixed use scheme, with retail and flexible use floor space with disabled parking and cycle parking. Working closely with the developer and the architect Kyson, Eight Associates was appointed as the sustainability consultant for the project at planning stage, responsible for a suite of performance analysis and assessment services: BREEAM Hotel preliminary assessment, BREEAM Retail preliminary assessment, SUDS and flood risk, daylight and sunlight impact assessment, energy assessment and overheating analysis.
The scheme was unanimously approved by Lambeth Council at the Planning Applications Committee meeting in April 2017.
"Eight Associates has rapidly become the 'go to' consultancy for all our ecology and arboricultural requirements. Each member of this friendly team has impressed us with their expertise, pragmatism and efficiency. The professional, 'fuss free' services mean we can turn projects around very quickly for our clients, which is critical for our business."
Andrew Brooks Development Manager at Lumiere Property

"Eight Associates has provided invaluable sustainability advice for our RIBA award-winning boarding house at Brighton College, for both the BREEAM assessment and ecology. They were able to ensure we met Brighton and Hove Council's stringent Sustainability Policy in a very tight timeframe. I have found Eight to be a breath of fresh air and have already appointed them on our next development."
Steve Patten Projects Director, Brighton College
"The Green Register really values eight associates' commitment to the promotion of sustainable building in all areas of their work."
Lucy Pedler Director, The Green Register of Construction Professionals
"We have utilised the services of Eight Associates several times now and found them to be professional, approachable and friendly. They understand the requirements and demands of BREEAM assessments and have helped us early on at design stage to ensure that our construction projects achieve the required rating. A key part of compiling the evidence is a prompt and efficient review which they deliver consistently. I look forward to working with Eight Associates again in the future."
