Dicken's Yard is a new development on an occupied urban site in Ealing, London, comprising office, retail, health and leisure facilities as well as 530 new residential units.
The project presented exciting challenges on the issues of sustainability and renewable energy. The developer's holistic approach to the sustainability of the site throughout the construction process placed an emphasis on the use of environmentally-friendly products to conserve energy and reduce carbon emissions. The diversion of existing services and the construction of a below-grade car park presented site difficulties that DSSR resolved.
In addition to all mechanical and electrical services, DSSR provided renewable energy studies, cost viability options and site services infrastructure for the development, which is a pioneering 'Key Flagship Structure'.
