BedZED seven years on
About BedZED
The Beddington Zero Energy Development, or BedZED, is the UK’s best-known eco-village. The multi-awardwinning development is one of the most coherent examples of sustainable living in the UK.
BedZED was initiated by BioRegional and developed by Peabody in partnership with BioRegional anddesigned by Bill Dunster Architects (now BDa ZEDfactory). BedZED is owned and managed by Peabody.Located in Hackbridge, south London, BedZED comprises 100 homes, community facilities and enough work-space for 100 people. Residents have been living at BedZED since March 2002.Many thanks to all of the residents who took part in the monitoring by answering questions and allowing usaccess to their meters. Without their continued input we would be unable to gauge successes or recommendimprovements, for BedZED and for future developments.
