Travelodge @ Newington Causeway
his 142,937 ft² mixed-use development comprises a 140-bedroom hotel on the first 11-levels, with 12-floors of private residential property above. Facilities within the hotel include a 50-cover restaurant, bar, a compact commercial kitchen and linen stores. The bedrooms rooms are served by VRF comfort cooling.
We are creating the concept design of all mechanical, electrical, public health systems and lifts for the development. Our responsibilities also include the compilation of detailed early energy modeling and calculations to demonstrate how the building will achieve GLA 35% (better than part L 2013).
Using dynamic simulation modelling our Energy Studio designed a high-performance building envelope boasting good air-tightness to minimise heat losses. The buildingfaçade is wrapped in vertical fins to reduce unwanted solar gain, whilst passive ventilation to apartments helps mitigate against overheating. We deliver a low carbon energy solution through mechanical ventilation with heat recovery units, a centralCHP energy centre, and high-efficiency lighting with intelligent daylight control systems.
