SUMMARY: New 4-star 177-room Hotel

CLIENT: H10 Hotels

ARCHITECT: Maccreanor Lavington

H10 London Waterloo is a landmark four-star hotel, developed in a key central London location.

At 13 storeys, the hotel M&E installations included an early UK installation of a mist sprinkler system serving the upper floors plus a dry riser, a fire fighting lift and a standby generator. Sustainability was carefully considered and numerous options appraised including the use of an open-loop bore hole ground source heat pump and biomass pellet boiler.

The final design achieved 30% “renewable energy inputs” using air source heat pump systems for heating and cooling together with a gas-fired CHP unit to generate hot water and off grid electricity.

Maccreanor Lavington Architects were awarded Hotel and Leisure Architect of the Year at the 2010 Architect of the Year awards in recognition of H10 London Waterloo.
