Abstract

This session will describe the work of King’s College London in achieving sustainable refurbishment over the last 8 years at its Strand campus in central London. The phased series of projects includes the southern wing of the College’s original 1829 building (winner of the 2006-7 Green Gown Award for Sustainable Construction), an adjacent 1970’s building and the late 18th century east wing of the iconic Somerset House. Topics covered will include:

  • making best use of the building’s original character and design
  • introducing new technologies and controls
  • strategies to minimise the need for cooling and heating
  • integrating with campus services and transport strategies
  • lessons learnt for future projects.
