Code to Success: Oberon Court Achieves The Onerous CSH Level 5 Standard
|Stroma Technology, leading providers of building compliance assessments and energy carbon consultancy services, delivered a package of complementary services on the ground breaking Oberon Court residential development, one of London's most energy-conscious yet.
The scheme was awarded a Level 5 Code for Sustainable Homes rating – the second highest level available – and demonstrated high standards of sustainability, alongside high build quality and aesthetics.
Stroma Technology’s services encompassed Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) assessment, Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) assessment and provision of Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs), daylight calculations, air-tightness testing and acoustic consultancy services.
By conducting CSH and SAP assessments and daylight calculations through a single co-located team, Stroma Technology provided an efficient, integrated service that delivered financial and programme benefits to the scheme. Our assessors’ proactive involvement from the early project stages onwards was critical in order to achieve CSH Level 5.

The development employs a number of sustainable measures to meet the onerous requirements of Level 5. A wide range of technologies have been used, from renewable energy (e.g. solar PV panels) to water conservation devices (e.g. greywater recycling). The buildings are also super-insulated, have a high level of air-tightness, and are fitted with heat recovery ventilation and hot water heat recovery systems.
The development provides 42 new homes for sale, rent or shared ownership within the East Ham district of London. It was delivered by housing association L&Q and developer Hill Partnerships, with the first residents moving in during December 2011.
