Constructing Excellence Awards, Building Performance Winner 2012
Winner, London and South East: Mayville Community Centre – bere:architects
From a tram generating station to a self-sustaining community hub, the Mayville Community Centre has piloted a new era in sustainable refurbishment. The renovation of the Victorian building in Islington was carried out by bere:architects as part of a community partnership and provided 35 per cent extra space within the original footprint whilst delivering a massive 95 per cent of overall energy savings. Innovations and detailed monitoring were possible with Technology Strategy Board investment.
