Situated on a site adjacent to St. James Street Station within the London Borough of Waltham Forest, South Grove Site C is a new build scheme providing 83 new homes, 50% of which will be affordable, and a new NHS health centre. The scheme is part of Walthamstow’s wider South Grove Masterplan, which will provide 518 new homes.
Early stage M&E input informed the design and guided it through it’s planning application, which was approved in December 2019. XCO2 are now completing the mechanical, electrical and public health services design to BIM Level 2 and will see the project through to construction stage.
The development incorporates air source heat pumps supplemented with boilers to provide a communal heating system for the building, with space heating and hot water produced in each flat via a heat interface unit (HIU). An allowance has been made for a future connection to a local district heat network, and photovoltaics are provided at roof level for renewable electricity generation.
