International Quarter London is a joint venture between Lend Lease and London Continental Railways to create a thriving business quarter at the heart of London’s newest metropolitan area, Stratford City, E20. As well as new homes and community facilities, International Quarter London provides approximately 4,000,000 ft² of work space along with retail and a hotel, creating 25,000 jobs. The commercial space is spread across two sites, North and South, and designed around the core values of promoting health and wellbeing in the workplace.

Our Contribution:

Inform Design was involved in technical assessment of CCF systems. The main aim of the contribution was to properly model the CCF system and predict the transmitted solar radiation on an annual basis. The scope included both accurate modelling, as well as a validation exercise between two Dynamic Thermal modelling tools: IES VE and IDA ICE. A parallel method had to be developed and inserted into IES VE in order to match the (solar) energy transfer results of IDA ICE. Close collaboration with the M&E consultants and the contractor allowed us to successfully inform the envelope design.
