This new regeneration development for Epping County Council consists of five sites currently used by an existing sports center, former school, town council building and car parks.
The Epping development will be turned into a mixture of houses and apartments offering a range of private for-sale homes, high-quality rented homes, and affordable housing aligned with Epping County Council's affordability criteria. Proposals also include an enhanced leisure center, multi-level car parking (including electric car charging points), retail, offices, cinema, and community space to complement the established High Street.
The project challenges included proving the economic viability of the sustainability measures that we have developed and incorporated these into our design. The client brief is for affordable, sustainable development, so we did a cost-benefit analysis for the swimming pool site to provide evidence of the impact of Introba's sustainability measures. These findings have been incorporated into the planning proposal which has been submitted. It was essential for the client that the design team showed how its sustainability measures could go beyond the local plan and work towards a net zero development.
