The scheme posed many challenges, including recording studios with strict requirements in relation to plant and airborne noise. The scheme has a BREEAM, ‘Very Good’ rating and utilises an air source heat pump as the primary heat source, complementing the underfloor heating system.
Gas plant was also utilised to back up/top up the system and provide domestic hot water for a large commercial and demonstration kitchen.
The project scheme also included extensive LED internal and external lighting with appropriate lighting controls.
