Project Information


Located in the heart of the Vauxhall Gardens Conservation Area, Spring Mews comprises a 378 student accommodation development including gym, swimming pool, cinema and laundry facilities. There are also a number of flexible office/retail units and a 93-bed Staybridge Suite hotel operated by IHG Group for longer stay requirements.

The M&E installation has been designed around a Swedish devised energy centre to deliver the highest sustainability goals for the scheme. LJJ installed a high performing geothermal heat pump system which supplies more than 80% of the development’s energy requirements, delivering heating, cooling and domestic hot water (DHW) with the waste heat from the cooling equipment used to supply the heating system and DHW.

The energy centre uses an aquifer as an energy source, supplying 3no. energy machines with high-grade heat from the ground. This system also utilises waste heat produced by the building in the summertime by storing that heat in the ground until needed in the winter.

Mechanically the installation includes boilers, thermal stores, Calorifiers, plate heat exchangers and dry air cooling plant and a CHP and photovoltaic panels at roof level.

Electrically LJJ installed 2no. large switch panels (for the hotel and student accommodation) and a roof-mounted generator to provide essential power for life safety systems. Also installed is a complex lighting scheme utilising LED, tungsten filament and fluorescent luminaires. A key card system ensures lights are switched off when not in use.
