Plashet Road

Etude were Passivhaus designers on this new build affordable homes project in Newham. Plashet Road is a 5-storey multi-residential building with a nursery on the ground floor and 65 flats.

We supported the architect through RIBA Stages 1 to 3 and were then appointed by the contractor for RIBA Stages 4-6.  We inform the design of the building form and fabric in order to maximise energy efficiency. We also fed into the roof design and how PV generation capacity could be maximized, now or in the future. Etude also worked closely with the M&E consultant to develop the low carbon heating and hot water strategy, comparing options for future carbon emissions, capital cost, energy costs for the residents, maintenance and space requirements.

Plashet Road completed in January 2024 and is currently going through Passivhaus building standard ‘Classic’ certification.
