Happy Christmas! Advent calendar no 9

30th November 2016

Behind the door is… (drum roll)…

The UK’s most sustainable heritage building: Grosvenor’s 119 Ebury Street

119 Ebury Street has become the first listed residential building to achieve BREEAM “Outstanding”

Grosvenor’s residential refit of the Grade II listed 119 Ebury Street, London, has secured the first ever BREEAM Outstanding rating for a listed residential retrofit.  The three apartments secured final scores of 89.2, 90 and 90% – the highest ratings to date for a BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment – and have been designed to reduce carbon emissions by more than 75% from the property pre-development.

Previously a run-down hotel in need of renovation, the property has been enhanced and preserved, with the addition of a range of innovative sustainability features integrated into the design.  Residents will benefit from lower energy bills, improved indoor air quality and better sound proofing.

Eight Associates acted as the Energy specialist, BREEAM Assessor and BREEAM Accredited Professional for the refurbishment. Read our case study and experience a ‘before and after’ tour of the apartments on Grosvenor’s website.
