Sustainable Living at urbanest Battersea

One of the most unique aspects of our Battersea student accommodation is its structure and design.

This is a state-of-the-art building that is leading the revolution in sustainable buildings. Our Battersea accommodation was constructed to Passivhaus standards.

Buildings are responsible for 35% of the world’s energy consumption, but through Passivhaus, we were able to build self-sufficient student accommodation. With very high insulation levels, airtight building fabrics and ‘thermal bridge-free’ construction, we aim to recover 80% of all heat.

It is due to Passivhaus that our Battersea student accommodation has heat recovery ventilation, meaning that energy is not lost through the building but is kept cool enough to remain comfortable. What’s more, with all air being filtered, air quality is better, especially for those suffering from allergies.
