Evinox Energy are delighted to be working with Canary Wharf Group plc on the Southbank Place development. This outstanding scheme features a district heating system that incorporates a highly efficient energy centre, which will reduce the carbon footprint of the site. The District network will supply residents with thermal energy for heating, cooling and the production of domestic hot water.

Southbank Place is being developed by Braeburn Estates, a joint venture between Canary Wharf Group plc and Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company. When complete it will feature seven new buildings including residential space, state-of-the-art offices and a diverse mix of retail. This 5.25-acre development also features the iconic Shell building and offers some of the best views in London including the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Whitehall and exceptional vistas of the river.

Southbank Place

Heating & Cooling Interface Units

Evinox Energy have supplied both heating and cooling interface units, including twin plate ModuSat® XR units for instantaneous heating and hot water, ModuSat® single plate units for cooling and ModuSat® FS models that feature an integrated hot water storage tank. The Canary Wharf Group plc decided this was the ideal solution as many apartments require both heating and cooling throughout the home.

Smart Connected Control

The Interface units at Southbank Place feature our SmartTalk® two-way communication technology, which operates using the same hard-wired network as the metering data collection without additional costs. This enables all dwellings to be remotely metered, controlled, interrogated and tested, and enables operation and maintenance routines to be run remotely including the diagnosis of faults. The system picks up a range of alarms such as faulty components, faulty meters, high /low system pressure.

By using our two-way communication system, any HIU performance check can also be carried out remotely, significantly reducing inconvenience, maintenance time and cost.

Credit towards Code for Sustainable Homes

Each home also features an Evinox ViewSmart ENE3 controller, which can display all of the information required to gain credits for the Code for Sustainable Homes. This includes historical consumption data in a graphical format to enable residents to view information about their usage and compare different periods. This removes the requirement to install a separate energy display device to gain credits towards the Code for Sustainable Homes.

A State of the Art History and Library Centre for Kent

Dollar-Bay Image

Contact us

Contact us on 01372 722277 for further information or a quotation.

The recently completed Kent History and Library Centre has been described as one of the most innovative in the UK, providing local people with state of the art facilities and better access to Kent’s rich culture and heritage. It houses around 14 kilometres of historic material relating to Kent, dating back to 699 AD, and is a fantastic resource for anyone interested in local history.

This £27m joint scheme with Kent County Council, Bouygues UK and Warings Contractors is a mixed use development. The building provides a home for the new flagship Library and archives for the county of Kent, alongside 57 extra care apartments for Housing 21 and 60 affordable homes for West Kent Housing Association.

In order to provide energy efficient, sustainable housing, the West Kent Housing Association apartment block, Tennyson Lodge, has been constructed to the very latest building standards and benefits from an Evinox communal heating system. All of the apartments are heated from a communal boiler system, which provides instantaneous heating and hot water via ModuSat Twin Plate Heat Interface Units.

The Evinox Communal Heating system includes central plant equipment that operates on Biofuel and Gas. The Evinox boilers were chosen due to their excellent seasonal efficiency performance, which enabled the client to obtain extra points for BREAM certification. The Evinox ModuSat TP heat interface units were supplied with bespoke flow and return connection positions to meet the requirements of the design specification and Evinox pre-installation rigs were used to ensure installation was quick and simple.

Unique Billing and Surveillance solution
The Evinox card reader system is being used at Tennyson Lodge to control costs and ensure the system operates debt free. West Kent Housing Association decided the card reader system was perfectly suited as it provides their residents with a choice of how they pay for their heating and hot water. Tenants can purchase their energy credit from a local Payzone outlet, online via the Evinox Energy website, over the telephone or alternatively they can pay via a monthly direct debit.

Meters are read remotely via a GSM modem using the Evinox BUS system. This solution also provides heat energy and mains cold water consumptions as well as flow and return temperatures from the communal heating central plant room installation to the individual apartments and the actual flow rate of the communal heating primaries into the apartment.

The Evinox card reader system controls costs and therefore keeps the tariff rate down due to less administration and less debt management service being required. As a result of this the occupiers can all benefit from reduced running costs. The Housing Association also has the peace of mind that the communal system is being managed efficiently without ongoing increasing costs.

Dollar-Bay Image

Contact us

Contact us on 01372 722277 for further information or a quotation.

The Ladbroke Grove development from Taylor Wimpey Central London, is part of the regeneration of Grand Union Centre, and includes both luxury apartments and homes for first-time buyers, close to Kensington and Chelsea. This mixed use scheme combines living and working, with office accommodation and retail units available alongside a high-quality development of apartments set around a private courtyard in W10. Evinox Energy are delighted to be working with P R Morson on this outstanding development, supplying heat interface units and metering & billing services.

Design and sustainability

To reduce the environmental impact of the development, the apartments are all connected to a communal heating system, which supplies residents with thermal energy for heating and production of domestic hot water. System water is heated in a central plant room, distributed via pipework around the building and energy is transferred to residents via a ModuSat HIU.

The ModuSat HIU’s at The Ladbroke Grove include both an energy meter for heating and hot water, and an electricity meter, meaning residents will be billed for both utilities by Evinox Energy.

In Built Pre-Payment Facility

Evinox ModuSat HIU’s are supplied pre-payment or credit account ready, meaning there is no requirement for additional controls, sensors or hardware providing flexible metering options.

With most modern housing schemes being mixed use, the ability to operate a part credit billing and part pre-payment system on the same scheme is extremely desirable, and providing a future proof solution is a key advantage of the Evinox system, as it can be adapted to different tenant occupations.  The ability to make changes remotely provides the ultimate in simplicity and flexibility at The Ladbroke Grove.

By combining smart HIU’s with excellent after-sales, end user support and flexible metering and billingservices, the building owner has a hassle-free, sustainable development and residents enjoy a fantastic place to live.

The former Terry’s chocolate factory in York is been transformed into an exclusive housing development called “The Residence”, offering luxury living in a historic setting. This prominent 5 storey Grade II listed building is being carefully converted into over 170 stunning and spacious apartments and penthouses.

We worked closely with The PJ Livesey Group to provide a comprehensive district heating solution to suit this unique development. This included:-

In addition, we will also provide a billing and full revenue management service, including itemised energy bills for residents and a billing app to manage their account online.

District Heating System

The district heat network that has been installed at the chocolate factory re-development, supplies the residents with thermal energy for heating and production of domestic hot water. The use of this type of system ensures that the listed façade of the building is maintained with no requirement for individual boilers and flues or a gas network around the building

A district network offers considerable energy savings when compared to individual gas fired boilers, and greatly reduced carbon emissions for the scheme as a whole, which was very attractive to the developer The P J Livesey Group.

Debt Free Communal Heating at Highbury Gardens

Dollar-Bay Image

Contact us

Contact us on 01372 722277 for further information or a quotation.

RECENTLY AWARDED “BEST NEW PLACE TO LIVE” BY THE MAYOR OF LONDON BORIS JOHNSON AT THE 2012 LONDON PLANNING AWARDS, HIGHBURY GARDENS IS A
MIXED-USE HOUSING SCHEME THAT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED BY FIRST BASE ISLINGTON LTD.

The development consists of 119, one, two and three bedroom homes built around a new landscaped courtyard. This includes 62 homes for private sale and key workers being delivered with the HCA, the national housing and regeneration agency. A further 57 apartments will be owned by the Housing Association partner, Southern Housing Group, providing a mix of tenures to meet local housing needs. First Base chose to use the revenue management services of Evinox to provide tariff control and billing management for residents via the Evinox ModuSat communal heating system.

Highbury Gardens has been designed to meet leading industry standards such as Building for Lifetime Homes and consists of robust, well-built, energy efficient buildings that are designed to have a long life.

Ideal for residents seeking a “greener” lifestyle, the development meets the Code for Sustainable Homes, with 20% of the development’s energy demand being met by on-site renewable energy. Energy efficiency measures include solar thermal panels on the roof, reducing carbon emissions by 16%.

Benefiting from an Evinox communal heating system, the residents at Highbury Gardens buy energy ‘on demand’ (heat) rather than ‘raw fuel’ (gas). The central boiler plant also generates less carbon emissions and uses less energy to run than the equivalent of individual gas boilers in each apartment.

To control costs and ensure the system operates debt free, the Evinox card reader system is being used. The Housing Association decided the card reader system was perfectly suited to Highbury Gardens as it provides their residents with a choice over how they pay for their heating and hot water. The Evinox solution offers flexibility, with the option to Pay-As-You-Go, where tenants will purchase their energy from the local Payzone point as energy units are required or alternatively tenants can pay via a direct debit or online.

The Evinox MBUS system at Highbury Gardens has been provided so that the meters are read remotely via a GSM modem. This solution also provides heat energy consumptions as well as, flow and return temperatures to and from the apartment from the communal heating central plant room installation and the actual flow rate of the communal heating water into the apartment. These temperature and flow readings provide an overview of how the system is operating and are useful for an engineer to see if the system is balanced correctly and can identify areas of poor flow or an individual meter problem without the need to visit the site.

The Evinox card reader system controls costs and therefore keeps the tariff rate down due to less administration and less debt management service being required. As a result of this the occupiers can all benefit. The building owner and managing agent also have the peace of mind that the communal system is being managed efficiently without ongoing increasing costs.

Highbury Gardens was awarded “Best New Place to Live” by the Mayor of London Boris Johnson at the 2012 London Planning Awards. These awards recognise planning professionals and organisations that have made a vital contribution to the capital and are run jointly by the Mayor of London, London First, the Royal Town Planning Institute and London Councils. The awards celebrate planning achievements in the capital, from iconic projects with international profile, to community scale schemes.

Refurbishment of Social Housing Apartments

Dollar-Bay Image

Contact us on 01372 722277 for further information or a quotation.

Tenants on the Hickman estate in Wolverhampton are benefiting from a £12 million investment as part of the Wolverhampton Homes Decent Homes programme. The two high rise blocks on the estate, Wodensfield Tower and William Bentley Court, are currently being completely refurbished and will benefit from the installation of an Evinox communal heating system in each block, which is more energy efficient than individual boilers.

Integrated Communal Heating
The Evinox communal heating systems include ModuSat heat interface units providing accurate metering of energy consumption for each tenant and a billing facility. The Modusat units are powered by central boiler plant equipment located in plant rooms sited adjacent to the high rise blocks.

The motivation behind Wolverhampton Homes choosing Evinox for this project was the invaluable M&E support and design input that has been provided. Evinox engineers have completely designed the system from sizing the heating and hot water outputs required for each apartment, the pipework system and routing, pumps and flow rates required to circulate the primary energy and the power required in the plant room to drive the system. This has reduced cost and ensures that the correct heating systems have been specified for each block.

Central Energy
Another key consideration was the ability to source the central plant equipment from the same supplier as part of an integrated package. Two Evinox ADI CD packaged boiler skids were chosen for each building, which due to their compact design and the ease and speed of installation removed the need and cost of a temporary boiler house.

The pre-packaged skids contain 400kW Evinox ADI CD boilers which provide excellent seasonal efficiency performance and extremely ecological combustion with impressive class 5 NOx figures of < 10ppm and CO around 47 ppm, the skids are also fitted with Pressosmart pressurisation sets and AnoPro corrosion protection.

Improved Safety with Removal of High Rise Gas Infrastructure 
By installing communal heating at Wodensfield Tower and William Bentley Court, it removes the requirement for high rise gas infrastructure throughout each building and the associated risks that come with this. There is also no requirement for individual boilers in each apartment, which reduces the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning and the need for annual gas inspections. The removal of the boiler flues also improves the aesthetics of the buildings.

Energy Metering & Billing
The Modusat heat interface units in each apartment include an integrated energy meter, which accurately records the energy consumption in each dwelling, and ensures that residents only pay for the proportion of energy that they use.

Wolverhampton Homes have decided the Evinox PaySmart™ metering solution is perfectly suited for their residents at Wodensfield Tower and William Bentley Court. The PaySmart™ system enables residents to be in control of their own energy bills by paying for the energy as they need it and therefore removing any burden of building up unpaid bills or debt. This solution also takes away the collection of money by the Housing Association.

Lesley Roberts, Chief Executive of Wolverhampton Homes, said: “With our partners Bullock Construction, we are delighted to be delivering this much-needed investment to the Hickman high rise blocks. The show flats are a huge improvement on the previous accommodation and it will make a big difference to the tenants”

Wembley Central Apartments

Wembley Central is an iconic 13 storey Apartment tower with stunning views towards the new Wembley Stadium, Harrow on the Hill and central London, part of the latest Brownfield development by St Modwens.

With 117 contemporary 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and duplexes requiring heating and hot water fed from a communal energy centre featuring Biomass boilers as the leading heat source, the Evinox ModuSat provided the perfect solution.

Unlike most other manufacturers communal Heat Interface Unit’s, the unique design of the ModuSat ensures energy is stored within each apartment in a buffer, the benefits of which are twofold.

Firstly with the diversities that can be applied, the size of the centralised plant can be reduced by up to 50% when compared to plate heat exchangers, which in turn can potentially reduce size of primary pipe work around the building.

Secondly any centralised thermal buffering required by the biomass can be reduced due to the storage available in the ModuSat’s around the building, reducing plant room space requirements.

The in-built energy meter in each ModuSat is being used for remote monitoring and billing using BUS communication to provide the end user with a fully itemised energy bill. Evinox will also provide on-going maintenance, removing any worry or burden from the building owner and operator.
