Exceptional Energy Performance

This innovative 283 apartment development utilises a 'fabric first' approach with a combined heat and power (CHP) system to achieve exceptional energy efficiency and reduce emissions.

Wellheads CHP carbon footprint is a maximum of 250g of CO2 per kWh of heat. This is a 66% reduction in CO2 emissions when compared with gas boilers (up to 380g of CO2 per kWh).

Building Standards have awarded the optimised building envelope ‘Silver Standard’. These structures achieve a 21% reduction in CO2 emissions compared with standard homes.

All tenants are offered the highest level of sustainable housing across all four apartment types. 1,000m2 of green space is provided, including; community open spaces with provision for children’s play; woodland walks; spaces for quiet contemplation and shelter.
