Ollio was commissioned by Hampshire County Cricket Club and their property advisors Land and Development Advisory Ltd (Ladal) to provide details to Eastleigh Borough Council (EBC) on the concepts that informed the sustainability and mechanical and electricall building services for the new Boundary Lakes Golf Clubhouse at Moorhills Road West End.

An application for Planning Permission has been made under the conditions of National Planning Policy Framework to build a new golf clubhouse.  Under the Borough Council’s planning rules any application for a new development must demonstrate compliance with its Local List for Validation (LLV) of Planning Approvals before being granted its permission and a Lawful Development Certificate.


In keeping with this, innovative new design and analysis methods incorporate extremely powerful Evolutionary Algorithms (EA).  EA deploys advanced computing power to enable engineers to search through millions of combinations of the possible wall, roof, window types, building ventilation permutations and architectural geometry to find those net-zero energy outcomes with the lowest or optimised cost to build.

In developing this fabric first energy and sustainability strategy for the new building's fabric envelop, a platform is created as the basis for the over layering of heat pump and renewable photovoltaic panels, to get the building to a zero carbon ready position.  Electric Vehicles (EV) infrastructure is in place to facilitate 20% of car parking spaces to have EV charging points from handover.  Being all-electric and low energy this future thinking strategy, paves the way for the entire development to be zero carbon by 2030.

Further to optimising energy and daylight, the new clubhouse will include measures for water conservation, careful low carbon materials selection and the minimisation of transport and waste. A green sedum roof will add to the overall ecological habitat and biodiversity.

All of this is complimented by an external and internal lighting design that has been modelled to check that it does not cause any detriment to local bat and insect foraging habitats thus protecting local biodiversity.
