The Beddington Zero Energy Development BedZED

The Innovative Peabody Trust commissioned this development as an ultra-low energy mixed use scheme in the London Borough of Sutton. It consists of 82 homes, 1600 m2 of work space, a sports club, nursery, organic shop and health centre, all constructed on the site of a former sewage works - the ultimate brownfield site. Peabody was able to countenance the additional costs of the environmental provisions on the basis of the income from the offices as well as the homes. Though the Trust is extremely sympathetic to the aims of the scheme, it had to stack up in financial terms. It is described in detail in Chapter 18 'State of the art case studies'.
