  8. 8. SUSTAINABILITY AND ARCHITECTURE •Solar Panels Provides heated stored water to boost and increase efficiency of boilers for space heating and hot water supplies. – Free hot water •Passive Ventilation Atrium glazing with automatic opening panels which constantly regulate the heat build up within the building and so reducing cooling costs. •Sun Tubes Provides natural light to rooms without external windows. Provides natural daylight and therefore reduces running costs. •Grey Water System Collection of roof rainwater into underground storage tanks which is then filtered and pumped back into the building for the flushing of toilets and also watering external areas. •Solar powered ventilation fans Provides solar powered ventilation to internal rooms with no running costs. •Sustainable Drainage Surface water is filtered back into the ground through the use of soakaways to reduce the amount of drainage put back into the Local Authority drainage system.
  9. 9. Westminster School Building, London - £3m GNA Surveyors were appointed as project and cost managers for the conversion of a dilapidated building into a new music department for a public school within the centre of Westminster, London. The building required substantial renovation including new mechanical and electrical installations, a new roof and re-levelled floors and ceilings. The challenges of a landlocked site with limited space were overcome when the basement was extended to provide additional space. The ground and upper floors were converted into performance areas and lecture rooms. The acoustic performance of the building was critical and sound insulation; reverberation measures and sound attenuation were all installed. In addition two apartments were created at the 2nd floor level.
