QODA were appointed as MEP and Sustainable Engineers for the 1000 dwellings masterplan at Convent Way, which spans across 5 phases. The project set a new urban dwelling standard for the London Borough of Hillingdon in terms of integrating Passivhaus design, landscaping, sustainable transport, and building quality.

QODA designed a communal ambient heat network to provide maximum benefit to the client with respect to plant capital expenditure and space consumption, while trying to minimise tenant bills. The 2 stage reversible heat pump and passive design features maximised thermal comfort now, while also meeting the climate challenges of 2050 and 2080 with minimal refurbishment.
