ISN Retrofit site visit – Anna Freud Centre, 1st July, 2-3pm

We are re-arranging a visit to ISN member Anna Freud (N1 9JH), a world-leading mental health charity for children and families who are based in a 3,200m2 new build and refurbishment project on a restricted site. It is the first centre of excellence for children and young people’s mental health in England.

Their building (BREEAM excellent rated) wraps around an existing chocolate factory dating from 1915 and incorporates a double basement. The composite timber and concrete structure utilises the lightweight and low carbon qualities of timber while taking advantage of the properties of concrete. The existing building has been extensively reconfigured, with features including solar panels, hot water heated by a CHP, water consumption reduction through rainwater harvesting and smart energy control systems.

The 1 hour event will include a walkabout and a chat, a chance to to see how these design and energy efficiency installations could be applied to your building.
There’s a limited capacity on the tour.
