Supporting a major regeneration scheme in Surrey

 

Background

The redevelopment of the Redhill Station area is a key component of Reigate and Banstead Councils aspiration to regenerate Redhill in Surrey. The scheme is being promoted by Solum Regeneration (a partnership between Network Rail and Kier Property), working closely with Southern, the Train Operating Company responsible for managing Redhill station.

 

Challenge

The project was to include approximately 150 residential apartments, a 45,000 sq ft Waitrose supermarket, a number of smaller retail units, a multi-storey car park and a new station entrance and ticket hall.   A key challenge was to design sustainable, low carbon buildings that would be delivered on budget, with accurate predictions of energy savings and low carbon emissions in order to meet the stringent planning requirements. The project had to comply with the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 and also achieve a BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’.

 

Solution

We designed a sustainable solution to meet the stringent planning requirements. Our solutions, which included gas-fired CHP for central heat and hot water generation.

 

Outcome

The first phase of the work is due for completion in 2016. Ultimately, this redevelopment scheme will provide a bold new station as well as much-needed parking, retail and residential facilities.
