Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands (LDS) is an architecture design and urban planning consultancy committed to reducing building related emissions. They commissioned Greengage, on behalf of London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, to deliver a number of sustainability services for 70-80 Lillie Road.
70-80 Lillie Road is the redevelopment of a former nursery building and community hall into a residential building comprising 42 homes along with community spaces. The development aims to achieve Passivhaus ‘Classic’ to reduce operational carbon emissions, driven by the strategic sustainability vision of the client, LB Hammersmith and Fulham, to achieve an exemplar scheme.
Greengage was responsible for providing Passivhaus modelling and design advice for the project. PHPP modelling was performed early in the design phase to test different strategies and workshops were undertaken with the design team to ensure that the potential of the design is maximised. The team was advised on performance requirements as well as the suggested building fabric and systems for achieving Passivhaus ‘Classic’.
Overheating modelling was also undertaken early on in line with CIBSE TM59 and the new Approved Document O requirements, taking into account site specific constraints (e.g. noise, air quality, security) to inform the overheating mitigation strategy.
Greengage also delivered the energy assessment of the development for the residential and community areas as per Part L of the Building Regulations, conducted a Whole-life Carbon Assessment in line with the RICS guidelines, prepared the Circular Economy statement while engaging with the team to ensure that the Circular Economy principles are implemented.
Additionally, Greengage also delivered Ecology services including advice on installation of green infrastructure such as green walls and green roofs. The potential size and suitable species were suggested for the project.
The project has recently received planning permission and is currently at Technical Design stage, with construction completion date expected to be summer 2026.
