Social and Affordable Zero Carbon Housing Scheme.
Design Team:
PDP London

This award-winning development is unlike any other social housing scheme in Northern Ireland having been designed and built to meet Level 5 of The Code for Sustainable Homes, the first scheme in the Northern Ireland to meet this standard.

These contemporary homes utilised traditional strip foundations, whilst the superstructure entailed the use of highly insulated prefab timber system topped with slanted roofs set at 29 degrees south to optimize conditions for rooftop solar collection. Finishes included Cedral Cementitious Cladding, aluminium window, zinc dormers and a K-Rend facade. External works included services diversions, construction of retaining walls, road formation, street lighting, street furniture and extensive landscaping.
