Many considerations are taken into account whilst designing and building our new homes. These range from the effects that the development will have on the environment, including the responsible sourcing of environmentally managed materials and on site recycling and air and ground water pollution policies. Just as importantly the future use of the home and its ongoing effect on the environment is very carefully considered.
Modern building techniques include for the insulation of the whole of the building envelope. The walls, floors, ceilings, roof and windows all incorporate clever technology and far more insulation that has ever been used in order to maintain internal comfort.
On completion the properties are sealed and tested for airtightness. This together with carefully designed heating systems and Zedbuk A rated condensing boilers means that heating costs are kept to an absolute minimum.
Use of electricity is equally respected, our properties are fitted with a range of low energy light fittings, and all included appliances are “A” rated for energy usage, not only does this reduce CO2 emissions but also results in huge saving on electricity bills.
Water usage is also addressed with the use of dual flush toilet and aerated taps, again protecting our valued natural resource and keeping costs to a minimum.
Selected developments are built to code for sustainable homes accreditation, for more information please enquire.
