Industrialised Retrofit

E2 Rebuild European retrofit exemplar, Thamesmead

One of our key commissions at sustainablebydesign was for the architectural works to deliver the factory-produced overcladding of 20 flats at Thamesmead for the specialist contractor engaged by Gallions Housing Association to Passivhaus Enerphit standard.   This involved visits to the German factory, ensuring our computer drawings were aligned to the factory production of the storey-height overcladding panels, and ensuring that the project manager for the E2 European programme was in line with the PHPP predictions to meet the contractual requirement.  We also were responsible for designing the related mixed use ground floor conversion, and substantial alterations to the layouts of the flats and circulation areas of the blocks, and for the new roof for PV electricity generation.
