The site falls under the jurisdiction of Sheffield City Council; in order to comply with the Sheffield Development Framework Core Strategy for the city, the building was required to meet 10% of its energy requirement from renewable or low carbon sources, and incorporate design measures to achieve an overall CO2 saving of 20%. Stroma delivered a Renewable Energy Statement to demonstrate the building’s ability to satisfy these requirements.

Stroma completed energy calculations to demonstrate Part L compliance at both the As-Designed and As-Built stages. The building’s design pre-dated the 2010 Regulations and therefore we undertook the energy assessment under Part L 2006 standards.

We also provided air testing services in-house in order to verify the building’s air permeability rating; the Client aimed to exceed the requirements of Part L in order to contribute to the required reduction in CO2.
