Mountbatten House

Constructed in the 1970s, Mountbatten House is an office building undergoing a full Cat-A fit-out refurbishment. The project proposes to completely replace and upgrade all MEP services throughout the Grade II listed building whilst allowing for phasing in the MEP design to allow the site to be occupied during the construction stages.

With Skelly & Couch leading the full MEP design and providing energy and thermal modelling plans, these upgrades will improve the building’s current energy use and carbon emissions. Other areas where Skelly & Couch aim to increase the building’s sustainability include rainwater harvesting and targeting Wired Certification to ensure the entire building has high quality internet connectivity and the infrastructure is designed to best practice. Also, installing a Hybrid VRF throughout, the leading environmental engineers aim to minimise volumes of refrigerant (and associated GWP) charged within the system, offering simultaneous heating and cooling with heat recovery to provide a comfortable and efficient living environment.

The Mountbatten House project also has a BREEAM rating of 'Excellent'.
