Structure in General
The building is located in one of London's Energy Action Areas and therefore sustainability was important for the design.
The wind turbines are expected to produce 50 Mwh of electrical power per year.
Out of 98 residents, 20 homes will be reserved for residents relocated from the nearby Hexgate Estate.
Strata SE1's sustainable design allows for a lower energy cost per apartment.
It is the first building in the world with integral wind turbines.
The three 9m-diameter wind turbines at the top of the building generate sufficient energy to either provide lighting for the whole building or provide electricity for 20 apartments.
Featured on-site is a combined heat and power system to provide sustainable power generation; rainwater is harvested for reuse.
The energy costs per flat are envisaged to be up to 40% less than Britain's typical housing average.
The building exceeds the current UK regulations relating to sustainability by 13% whilst overall carbon emissions are expected to be 15% lower than the Mayor of London's good practice benchmark.
