News reached us today that the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson has approved plans for a new 5-star hotel at Heathrow Airport. The hotel has been designed by Foster + Partners with PHA Consult providing environmental design consultancy and Sustainable MEP engineering services for the scheme. Our role included preparation of a full Sustainability Statement, Energy Statement and analysis of daylight availability and solar impact for the project. The scheme incorporates innovative strategies to reduce energy consumption and increase health and wellbeing using an environmental buffer concept, combined with on-site CHP and photovoltaic installation at roof level.
