Client: Breyer Group – London Borough of Lambeth
Overview: Breyer Group chose Parker Bromley to be the M&E contract partner for the renovation of 296 apartments in Brittany, Ward and Elkington tower blocks.
Ethelred Estate, the largest single estate regeneration in London is providing decent homes inside exemplar energy efficiency buildings, creating a 360 degree sustainable and integrated community.
Improvement works on these three 23 storey tower blocks consisted of the central plant room being completely replaced with four condensing boilers, 72,000L thermal storage and 310kw combined heat and power plant (CHP). The CHP unit provides heating, plus electricity which supplies the communal areas as well as being sold back to the residents.
In addition, each block has its own heat station plant room that converts LTHW primary heating into secondary heating and hot water via plate heat exchangers (PHE).
