Low-carbon #6: Vassall Road Housing, London by Tony Fretton Architects

Case study to show the six buildings with the lowest predicted annual CO2 emissions for their type

Services engineer Bailey Associates
Annual predicted CO2 emissions 20.98kg/m2 (end maisonette)

Units are oriented with glazing and balconies facing south to maximise solar gain. Although designed four years ago, to meet NHBC requirements, Vassall Road was designed to meet the current Part L requirements. Cellotex insulation with taped joints was used in the walls and roof, with on-site supervision from the design team. Double-glazed Velfac windows were used.
