Frankham Consultancy Group have been appointed to oversee the design and construction of three new vicarage developments in London and East Surrey, on behalf of the Anglican Diocese of Southwark.
The vicarages have been designed and specified to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Levels 4 to 6, reflecting the Diocese commitment to sustainability for new development. Energy demand is reduced to a minimum through highly insulated building elements, triple glazing and airtight construction. Heating and cooling is provided through a mechanical heat recovery system, and renewable energy is provided through solar PV.
Frankham have been involved with early feasibility studies through to fully detailed design, providing architectural design, mechanical and electrical service design, structural engineering and code assessment. The first scheme, in Battersea, is due to start on site in September 2015.
