Grade II Listed Building Refurbishment
Lloret is working on the refurbishment of Space House refurbishment, restoring the building to create 255,000 sqft of market-leading Grade A office space. A public realm sits at the base of the building, offering a space for restaurants and shops.
Space House, One Kemble Street, was once occupied by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), situated in Covent Garden. In 2015, the building was made a Grade II listed building due to its architectural, technical and historical interest through being an iconic London landmark associated with the 1960s commercial boom.
The renovation of Space House is looking to be the first-Grade II listed refurbishment to achieve a minimum BREEAM excellent rating, alongside the newly targeted 4.5 stars NABERS ratings. Lloret is proud to be working alongside BAM, contributing to enhancing the building’s overall performance by installing a Delta BMS. We have adapted the system’s capabilities to enhance the efficiency of the building to meet the required criteria set to achieve these impressive ratings.
Lloret’s BMS installation works to monitor and manage the renewable technologies of air source heat pumps and water source heat pumps. The choice of technology by the consultant, Atelier Ten, shows to lower the use of carbon by 46% on the top two floors and a 70% carbon reduction to the remainder of the building, enhancing the energy efficiency for the building.
The building uses natural ventilation throughout the two buildings. Lloret’s BMS operates an intelligent control of indoor air quality, based on CO2 and temperature. It proved the opportunity for occupants' to reduce energy consumption whilst increasing the flow of natural air around the building. The natural ventilation system and room setpoints have been adapted to meet NABERS standards.
BMS is fundamental to the smart infrastructure of a buildings. The Lloret BMS provides the opportunity for the future connection to a smart building app which will further allow for after-hour control, with remote access too via a web interface.
