A cutting edge development designed to reduce environmental impact and running costs for its residents.
The 14 low carbon homes for Radian and Portsmouth City Council are located on the old Copnor Bridge Bowling Green, which has been relocated.
Overcoming a series of obstacles on site, the build remained on schedule and provides a blueprint for future developments.
The construction site presented many problems as it is bounded by roads on three sides, adjacent to a major road bridge and a main rail line. A highly restricted location presented a challenge to build ultra sustainable homes meeting Code for Sustainable Homes Levels 3, 4, and 5. Using 'PassivHaus' principles of high insulation and airtightness, good thermal storage and controlled solar gain, we are proud of the quality of home that has been created here.
