Kevin Fenton Mews is a pioneering, environmental and socially focused development for London Borough of Bromley (LBB), providing 25 homes for vulnerable households who are in temporary accommodation and mostly living outside the borough.
LBB wanted to build super energy-efficient new homes after a gap of several decades. Working with them, our inhouse design team created an innovative zero-carbon housing scheme in the airspace above the Burnt Ash Lane car park. It is a 100% affordable residential scheme comprising of two blocks of a total of 10 x 1-bed and 15 x 2-bed flats including wheelchair accessible units, over 80% of existing car parking spaces for the local community. The car park has been also upgraded with additional five CCTVs for the development and two 4.5m pole mounted for the carpark, 15 EV chargers, new 40 cycle storage and new areas of planting.
The steel framed volumetric structure comes with “fabric first” approach combined with on-site renewable energy generation in the form of photovoltaic panels and solar assisted heat pumps to achieve a net zero operational carbon rating in SAP with as build SAP ratings exceeding 100 (A-rating).
