Wheatsheaf Leicester

Conversion of one of Leicester’s largest shoe factories into town houses and apartments. The scheme consists of town houses around the perimeter, with apartments predominantly on the upper floors. The existing roof was removed to make way for a large central roof garden. The lower ground floor car park is mechanically ventilated with impulse fans and has a full sprinkler system. Heating and hot water systems have been based around central boiler plant serving heat exchange units in apartments, allowing an energy efficient system with central billing linked to an off site energy monitoring station.
