→ Sustainable Drainage Systems, biodiverse roofs
→ Car free development
Hydethorpe Road will not only meet Lambeth’s high environmental and energy standards for new homes, but will go beyond. Energy efficient design through a fabric first approach, air source heat pumps in each dwelling, and photovoltaic panels will contribute to a significant reduction in operational carbon emissions. A Whole Life Cycle Carbon Assessment will be carried out at each RIBA stage, and circular economy principles will be embedded. Where practical, new building materials will be sourced locally. The site will benefit from Sustainable Drainage Systems, including biodiverse roofs and permeable paving. The development will be car free (except for one wheelchair accessible bay) and encourages sustainable modes of transport with the provision of secure cycle parking for all residents.
