Improvement on the RIBA 2030 Challenge

Wheeler Gate

This new mixed-use development in the Grade II listed Cavendish Building and Premier House in Wheeler Gate, Nottingham, will have commercial units on the ground floor and the upper floors will be student accommodation. At Viridis, we designed the services of this refurbishment based on ‘fabric first’ principles and thermal bridge free construction where feasible, to reduce energy consumption through design and, therefore, minimize the use of technologies necessary to achieve thermal comfort within the building. Also, we test the design against current building regulations to ensure compliance. Furthermore, we designed the building to be all-electric to help reduce the carbon footprint. We specified all the equipment and appliances to be energy efficient, LED lighting, skirting board heating and infrared panels, hot water cylinders with low heat losses, etc. All of this helped us achieve operational energy that exceeds the RIBA 2030 Challenge at a very cost-effective price!
