The Chelsea Barracks Development

Europe's Most Sustainable Development

Chelsea Barracks has been awarded LEED Platinum certification. As the benchmark for green building certification, LEED Platinum status confirms the development’s commitment to sustainability.

Chelsea Barracks is now not only the most significant development in Central London for decades, combining state of the art contemporary living in a historic setting, but is also the most sustainable development in Europe, and one of only 16 developments in the world to reach this standard.

Chelsea Barracks’ design principles respond to the needs of its occupants, wider community and also the long-term sustainability agenda. Achieving LEED Platinum ensures existing residents and future tenants will occupy healthy, future proof homes. It is the highest global standard of sustainability to be judged on and has set a new benchmark for developers around the world.

In our client's own words...

"Laurie, Greg and the WMS Team were appointed to install the underfloor heating systems to the apartments and townhouses on the Chelsea Barracks Project. Their Underfloor Heating System design was coordinated and installed in an extremely capable and professional manner.

WMS provide an excellent service, with a dedicated team who are self-sufficient, and work extremely well with their interfacing trades, in a collaborative and well-coordinated effort.

Their ‘self-delivery’ model works extremely well in a complex project environment and Laurie and his team were always available to support the project needs at every stage of the journey.

As with every project there is always a need to provide adaptable and flexible solutions to meet the delivery requirements and design specifications, WMS always delivered and were extremely supportive throughout.

It was unfortunate that the project suffered with some flooding due to ‘water escape’ from primary service installations. During the remediation works, and the late client changes which were also introduced, WMS were ‘on hand’ extremely supportive and adapted their installations with full support to the needs of project and the completion programme.

We would certainly appoint WMS and their team to new works in the future."
