Background

Vauxhall Sky Gardens is situated in the Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea Opportunity Area. Voted Housing Project of the year at the Sunday Times British Homes Awards 2014, it will help complete the regeneration of London’s South Bank. This project is one of the first new developments in London to introduce the Sky Gardens concept, whereby all apartments will have their own winter gardens and will benefit from the use of communal sky gardens. The visionary £130 million 36-storey property comprises 239 high quality homes, flexible office space, shops and leisure areas and the sky gardens on the 8th and 34th floors will provide spectacular views of the capital. This award-winning tower is an iconic addition to the London skyline.

Project

Working alongside Mace Ltd, Stroma adopted a collaborative approach:

  • An integrated approach to delivery of Stroma consultancy specialisms
  • Collaboration between in house BREEAM and energy consultants to determine and achieve all viable credits within the energy category
  • BREEAM and Code meetings coordinated to make the most efficient use of the design team’s time
  • A dedicated single point of contact within Stroma
As the BREEAM Assessor for the project, Stroma was targeted by the developer to achieve a “Very Good” rating.
