Strata SE1, now the largest residential tower in central London, was officially launched this week, with an exhibition at the Building Centre in Central London.

  • Planning legislation in the UK now insists that at least 10% of the energy requirements of any new dwelling have to be met by renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar, or ground source heating.

    I don't know how this compares with other countries, but I'd be interested to know.

    I've been watching this building go up on regular trips into London, and I'm glad to hear that it is taking its energy commitment seriously, rather than trying to just offset its energy use elsewhere.
  • Sweet building!
