The changes to the European Union’s Energy Performance in Building Directive (EPBD) are slipping into legislation without the usual fanfare however this far-reaching and highly influential mandate is the backbone for improving energy efficiency and will form the basis for many pieces of UK legislation.
From April 2018 Landlord’s will be unable to offer Commercial Property over 500sm with an EPC Rating of F-G for either sale or rent. Fines of upto £150,000 will be imposed on Landlord’s not complying with the legislation.
Our Client’s have achieved EPC Rating Compliance together with Premium Rents by refurbishing commercial properties such as
- 24 Britton Street
- Sutton Yard,
- Spitfire Studios
- 50 Great Sutton Street
- 25bVyner Street
- 54 Ayres Street and
- Berry Street
We look forward to assisting current and future clients to get ahead of the market as it has been suggested that these properties may form up to 35% of the existing non-domestic property portfolio!
Stephen Archer and Emiel Tijhuis – have they introduced an office uniform?
Archer Architects are pleased to announce the successful planning approval for 30 Queens Grove – the scheme for a garden room, to extend from, and linked to, the property at lower ground floor level. The new accommodation will house a wine cellar, an artist studio/family entertaining space and an enhanced home office.
The existing stone patio will be remodelled to incorporate a glazed, walk-on rooflight to provide natural light to the studio below. The garden will be reinstated, and a full range of plants will be sustained.
Archer Architects were successful in achieving planning permission from the London Borough of Islington to remodel the house for a long standing client’s in Hyde’s Place in February 2015.
Archer Architects were the original architect for the project.
