Considerate Constructors Scheme

Highly energy efficient office fit out

The office for The Dumont site team was inherited from three Network Rail viaduct archways.

The arches were converted into site offices using a stand-alone metsec framing system, with extremely high energy efficiency measures in place.

This made it one of the most sustainable offices in Berkeley Group. It included the following measures:

  • Site office thermally insulated beyond recommended U-values (roof/walls/floor <0.4W/m2K);
  • Triple glazing;
  • ‘Kill’ override switch for non-essential circuits;
  • Instant boiling water tap, avoiding repeatedly boiling a kettle throughout the day
  • A++ energy rated kitchen appliances (fridge & dishwasher)
  • PIR operated LED lighting throughout;
  • Site office on thermostat control, with TRVs to individual radiators;
  • All gas and electricity supplies are on 100% renewable tariffs with EDF;
  • Danskin raised acoustic flooring used (all timber FSC / PEFC) as opposed to traditional screed, with Danskin floor having lower embodied carbon footprint;
  • Bathrooms fitted with highly efficient hand dryers, push taps and PIR urinals
