Description of Murano Building
The Murano Building is a residential building in the London Bridge Quarter.
All of the apartments at the Murano Building have been designed with a high level of sustainability in mind, achieving Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
This means that the CO2 emissions from the apartments are at least 25% lower than the current building regulations.
This level of efficiency has been achieved through the use of a centralised air source heat pump providing heating and hot water to each apartment. In addition, high levels of insulation and air tightness throughout the development minimise heat loss. The apartments also feature energy-efficient lighting and low energy ventilation systems.
Smart Meters in every apartment also display the amount of energy consumed, allowing residents to stay informed on their individual energy consumption. Water usage has been minimised through the use of new water efficient WCs and outlets, with the ecological rating of the building further maximised by the use of green roofs in key locations.
