OR Consulting Engineers acted as environmental engineers for the £2m redevelopment and extension of a three-storey detached property located in Battersea.

The project involves the façade retention, reconstruction and extension of the existing house. A new basement extension houses a gym, yoga studio, playroom and office.

The basement is ventilated using a mechanical ventilation heat recovery system and bedrooms incorporate comfort cooling.

Key features of this design include:

  • The sensitive integration of services within the minimalistic architectural scheme, including the accommodation of the service plant within a challenging basement plantroom
  • The optimisation of passive performance of the building’s envelope, included the retained front façade
  • Building Regulations Part L compliance strategy
  • The design of a mechanical ventilation heat recovery system to provide filtered fresh air
