Waverley Gardens, constructed in 2009, is a 66 apartment
sheltered housing scheme, a mixture of 1 and 2 bed apartments,
in the Bishopsworth area of Bristol; owned and operated by
Brunelcare. The Redhouse II project directly extended the main
building to provide an additional 62 apartments on adjacent land;
previously redundant Bristol City Council offices off Heggard
New heating systems, incorporated high-efficiency modulating
gas fired condensing boilers and BMS controls; serving underfloor
heating coils to all heated spaces in the new extension.
A comprehensive building management system [BMS] was
installed, as an extension of the existing mechanical controls in
the existing Waverley Gardens plantroom, to serve the new parts of the building and provide sub-metering.
LED lighting and DALI controls installed throughout the
communal areas, replicating retro-fit luminaires and controls
systems installed as part of refurbishment works within the
existing buildings, provide a welcoming environment while maintaining a homely feel.
Solar panels have beeninstalled on suitable roof areas of the new existing building, to reduce the buildings CO2 emissions by a further 20% in order to achieve compliance with Bristol City Council’s planning policy.
