3 Andy Sheppard 11 th September 2012 Low Carbon Heritage Refurb

4 4 The project & team  Carbon reductions in Listed Buildings  Generic guidance document  Five case studies

5 5 Generic Guidance - Overview  The intended audience:  Planning and conservation officers  Architects  Building owners

6 6 Generic Guidance – Investigate  Bill analysis – basic but essential  Benchmarking can be challenging  Sub-metering very useful  Range of supplementary tests possible  Thermal imaging  Air pressurisation  In-situ U-value  Thermal modelling

7 7 Generic Guidance – Intervention  Think about the building as a whole  Energy hierarchy  Apply with pragmatism  Behaviour – has to be the first change  Fabric – possible with care  Services – more freedom  Low carbon – perfectly feasible

8 8 Case Studies  Heritage value & Statement of Significance  Building condition survey  Fabric & Systems  Bill analysis & benchmarking  Interventions listing  Options Appraisal  Recommendations

9 9 Mercer Gallery  Heritage importance within  Windows, doors and interiors  Controls, monitoring and behaviour  Larger scale interventions  Hot water system  Roof insulation (+ wall?)  LED lighting  Photovoltaics? 20%40%60%80%100% ! Elec Gas <5<10<25

10 10 St. Peters Street  Heritage importance within  Some windows, panelled reveals, roof spaces  Unsure future use – calculations difficult  Larger scale interventions  Loft insulation (with care)  Lighting controls  Draught stripping  Internal wall insulation feasible (esp. if hostel)  High performance secondary glazing 20%40%60%80%100% Elec Gas

11 11 Armley Mills  Heritage importance within  Pretty much everything!  Monitoring, controls  Larger scale interventions  Boiler system modernisation  Digital plant controls  Partial roof insulation  Daylight linking in lights 20%40%60%80%100% Elec Gas

12 12 Almondbury Dwelling  Heritage importance within  Exterior walls and roof, some interior  Recently upgraded  Larger scale interventions  Tailor to occupant  Draught-stripping  Low energy lighting  Loft insulation  Wall, floor insulation feasible 20%40%60%80%100% Elec Gas

13 13 Lord Deramore’s School  Heritage importance within  Exterior walls and roof, some interior  Emissions 86% heating  Larger scale interventions  Roof and wall insulation were poss.  Upgrade boiler system & controls  Secondary glazing  Photovoltaics 20%40%60%80%100% Elec Gas

14 14 Summary  Heritage Assets are significant and worth saving  More difficult than ‘normal’ existing buildings  But...  The process is no more difficult than usual  Start with the basics – they sometimes yield surprising results  With care, larger interventions can be identified  Significant savings are possible

30 Sustainable Heritage-Led Regeneration Harry Wardill

31 Middleport Pottery In June 2011, The Prince’s Regeneration Trust acquired the Middleport Pottery site to save it from closure and to embark on an ambitious and sustainable conservation and regeneration project. The project will save a nationally important piece of heritage while supporting and working with the people of Burslem and beyond. The 84,000 sq ft site will be developed into a community and enterprise hub that supports the local community and economy. Denby Holdings Ltd own the pottery business itself (Burgess and Leigh) and they will be the chief tenants at the Middleport Pottery site …the last working Victorian pottery in the UK

32 Critical Success Factors Conservation - Preserve the unique character of the listed buildings - Care for the collection of moulds, artefacts and archives ‘Mending the Factory’ - Deliver optimal working area for the Burleigh Pottery New Facilities - Establish sustainable visitor facilities (inc. shop/café) - Create space for craft based businesses Regeneration - Maximise regeneration impact (jobs, growth, participation) - Sustain high levels of community support Environment - Bring an underused resource back into full use and improve its environmental performance where possible

33 Conservation Philosophy

34 Environmental Building at risk repaired and embodied carbon ‘reused’ Retention of robust, long-lasting and flexible building fabric and layout Solid wall construction with good thermal mass Double aspect rooms with natural cross ventilation Good natural light levels with large existing windows and roof lights Light touch repairs – works only where necessary Thermal upgrades undertaken where practical e.g. roofs Installation of efficient gas powered central heating system Local sub-contractors used for the works where possible Traditional materials used where possible Green Travel Plan developed for future building users

35 Wider Burslem Port Street houses developed by the Council Harper Street Houses used as an exemplar for ‘homesteading’ Wedgewood Institute Wider Townscape Heritage Initiative Focus on the canal infrastructure Investment in other growing local pottery businesses Part of the wider place making work of the Prince’s Charities

36 Stoke-on-Trent is the 16 th most deprived local authority in the UK (10 th for jobs; 7 th for education) Fifty local jobs at the Middleport Pottery have been saved Production of Burleigh ware has and will continue to grow – more jobs will be created as the business flourishes New workshop units for creative industries will be created for new and expanding business in Burslem and the wider area. This will create further jobs. Visitor numbers will be increased from 8,000 per annum to 30,000. This will bolster the local economy and create further jobs Regeneration

37 Completed Heritage-Led Regeneration Projects Harvey’s Foundry, Hayle At one time 80% of the world's steam pumping engines were produced in Hayle. When the area suffered wide industrial decline, the Foundry was left redundant. The site has been developed to create rentable office space, craft workshops, art studios and live work units Phase III will create more work space and a heritage information centre

38 Harvey’s Foundry Successes (phases I and II) Restoration of the Grade II* listed Drawing Office and Grade II listed Foundry Farm buildings Construction of 8000sq ft of new enabling development at Dowren House, accommodating 51 new jobs and providing income for Hayle Town Trust. In total 78,931 sq ft of historic building space has been regenerated. With 112 people employed on site, over £3 million was raised for the exchequer through income tax and NI, between 2003 and 2010- in less than 9 years Harvey’s will have generated more than it cost. PRT estimates that 860 metric tonnes of CO 2 was saved through the reuse of these buildings, rather than building new

39 Completed Heritage-Led Regeneration Projects Sowerby Bridge Wharf, West Yorkshire Collection of 18th and 19th century canal buildings that sit at the head of the Calder and Hebble Navigation and adjoining Rochdale Canal. Main buildings on site are four stone-built, C18 th warehouses, one Grade II*, the rest Grade II. There are also ancillary buildings from the C18th Renovated to create mixed-use space that incorporates offices, workshops, a canal boat wet-dock and a restaurant.

40 Sowerby Bridge’s Successes £2.7 million of public investment by 2007, in addition to an undisclosed sum by British Waterways. £1.16 million of private investment, much of it from local businesses. 34,200 sq ft of vacant heritage building floorspace brought back into use 270 employees on site, 17 business units, 7 start-ups £1,631,934 a year in additional NI and income tax (2007 – 10) By January 2010, and despite the recession, unemployment in Sowerby Bridge had dropped from 10% to 5.6%. The local authority estimates it has seen a further £28m investment in the local area since the restoration, creating a further 350 jobs PRT estimates that 373 metric tonnes of CO 2 was saved through the reuse of these buildings, rather than building new
