Customer    Higgins Construction

Project       Forest Road

This social housing development had to be able to provide 10% on site renewable energy in order to meet the planning condition for new developments known as the Merton Rule. The Merton Rule, first pioneered by the London Borough of Merton, is now commonplace across most of the boroughs of London and has been adopted by other planning authorities across the UK heralding a new era in building design.

This building on Forest Road generates it's 10% with wind turbines specially designed to be fitted on to any building with their relatively light weight, low noise and ability to operate at low wind speeds.
