The Blewburton Partnership has helped a great number of commercial and domestic developments with their sustainability and conformance to legislation over the years. Below is a selection of our many successful interventions.

Case study: sixteen dwellings – West Oxfordshire

This development is a rural exception site which requires a minimum Code Level 3 compliance. The Blewburton Partnership took the development from pre-assessment, design, consultancy and Post Construction Review, and Blewburton performed the SAP calculations to help all dwellings exceed Part L1A by at least 25%.

Case study: award-winning development of 12 dwellings – Rural Buckinghamshire

The Blewburton Partnership worked with the developer from the early design stage providing advice on the most effective measures to take to achieve the desired Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes, through to Design Stage submission and Post Construction Review. The construction subsequently won the LABC Central Building Excellence Award for Best Social or Affordable Housing Scheme.

Case study: village hall – West Berkshire

Because there is no BREEAM scheme for community buildings, to achieve a rating of ‘Excellent’ it was expedient to work with the Blewburton Partnership to create a sustainability statement for this village hall based on BREEAM principles. In particular we advised on efficient use of water, as well as insulation, electricity efficiency, and ecological protection.
