Edward Woods Estate, W11
The three towers of Edward Woods Estate are instantly visible upon exiting Shepherd’s Bush underground station. As early adopters of the government’s CESP funding initiative, Hammersmith and Fulham Council embarked upon an energy efficiency refurbishment of the site in partnership with British Gas, Beyer and Lawtech.
The client engaged ECD Architects to design thermal and aesthetic improvements for the blocks.
Lawtech installed 4,500 m2 of Rockwool External Wall Insulation, finished with white renders on the gable ends and a range of cladding panels to the window-bearing facades. The application provided residents with both thermal benefits and a welcome acoustic buffer from the street sounds of this busy urban location.
The project also entailed the installation of solar panels at each tower, extending the full length of a gable end. An additional floor was added to each block to create penthouse apartments which the Council planned to sell to help fund the project.
The energy efficiency improvements achieved a U-Value of 0.29W/(m2K), reduced residents’ fuel bills and rejuvenated the estate.
