									Block W4 Project Update: April 2012
Dear Neighbour,

W4 Regent Street – a Crown Estate development managed by Exemplar

March has continued to be a busy month for the W4 development. Since our last newsletter, we have
completed the demolition of 12 to 14 New Burlington Street to basement level, and completed demolition
to ground level at 15 to 16 New Burlington Street and 153 to 167 Regent Street. The photos below show
our progress onsite this month.
We have also commenced the geothermal borehole testing. A geothermal borehole is a deep hole
approximately 150 meters into the ground which utilises the energy in the ground to be used for heating
and cooling the building. This will help reduce the emissions from the new building and also reduce the
demand on non –renewable energy sources.
