H2ydro Properties, Surbiton
H2ydro Properties’ ground breaking new £31m ‘flood risk free’ development at Surbiton Filter Beds London has achieved a mark of 90% from the BRE Group’s Greenprint accreditation system. The system is used to assist design teams in delivering masterplans that maximise the potential for sustainable communities. The score puts the schem in the ‘Examplar’ category, making it one of only a handful of UK projects to achieve the prestigious grade.
CRN are providing project management services on the scheme which comprises 64 residential homes on a floating pontoon, a 92 berth marina and lock gate, restaurant, landscaping and car parking. The development will also provide a publically accessible nature reserve, riverside walk, heritage and education centre, flood storage and a river taxi stop. Integral to the scheme is the ecological restoration of the site and protection of the Nature Reserve. State of the art green technologies are planned and modern methods of construction will be implemented using sustainable timber.
Carl Nelson assisted Greg Cook Northcroft in the submission of this award including research and liaison with the BRE. The scheme is due to start on site in early 2013.
