SECTOR: Multiple Housing – CONTRACT VALUE: £500,000.00 – DATE COMPLETED: April 2013
The development provides four new detached live-work eco houses on a site in Caistor.
The houses are designed in pairs and served by a new access road with north east facing entrance courts. The houses are positioned to accept low winter sun whilst the main glazed elevation faces south or west to link with the private garden areas.
‘Lean, mean and green’ sustainable principles were adopted to achieve high quality energy efficient houses, which incorporate low technology solutions such as heavy thermal mass, super insulated structure, natural ventilation and photovoltaic panels.
This project won Best Small Development at the Regional LABC Building Excellence Awards 2015.
