Riverside Dalmarnock

Riverside Dalmarnock

The Riverside Dalmarnock Development, which is situated adjacent to the neighbouring Commonwealth Games Village, meets key strategic priorities that are outlined in the Council’s Local Housing Strategy including promoting regeneration and enabling investment in the delivery of energy efficient new build homes across all tenures.

Tenure split includes 200 private homes for sale, including houses and flats and 362 properties for Mid-market Rent, New Supply Shared Equity and Social Rent. Accommodation consists of two, three and four-bedroom houses, four-bedroom wheelchair houses, two-bedroom cottage flats, three-bedroom maisonettes and one and two-bedroom flats. Full compliance with HFvN was achieved along with SBD Gold Standard being implemented.

A robust/timeless pallete of materials including brick, zinc and brass across the site will lead to reduced maintenance and running costs for the client. The project was also required to achieve a 15% carbon emissions abatement using Low and Zero Carbon Generating Technologies (LZCGT). This is achieved by using enhanced fabric performance, individual and communal heating systems a mixture of Decentralised Mechanical Extract Ventilation (DMEV) and Centralised Mechanical Extract Ventilation (CMEV) and Photovoltaic Panels (PV).

A communal heating system was chosen for the flats to avoid gas pipework runs internally and unsightly boiler flues externally. Thermal Modelling was one area where we worked in tandem with the energy consultant to achieve key principles to limit thermal bridging and improve on PSI values. Silver Active Level was achieved throughout. Airtightness was considered early in the design process as it is an integral part of the overall sustainability of the project.

This ultimately leads to reduced heat loss and improved fabric performance. We also spent a great deal of time on the steel frame thermal modelling for this project to eliminate the risk of surface condensation. The EWS1 process was undertaken and certification was achieved throughout.
