Elephant Park, Energy Hub, Site Progress
Early installation of large and essential equipment has commenced in our Energy Hub and community centre currently under construction in Elephant and Castle.
The Energy Hub, for Lendlease’s new development on the Elephant Park, will provide heat and hot water to more than 3000 homes across the area with additional energy fed back onto the grid. The building also provides a new community heart to the development, that combines a nursery, café, community use space, pocket park and CHP plant. The steel frame is nearing completion and the façade cladding has now entered manufacture. The building will be clad in metal perforated sinusoidal sheets with a natural anodised finish. Large pod windows will puncture the cladding giving key views to the surrounding context, while picture framing key equipment within the building.
The project is due for completion December 2017.
