Sanctuary Group has built two new homes to Passivhaus standard as part of a development in the Nitshill area of Glasgow, that includes ten highly energy-efficient homes.
Heat losses of Passivhaus homes are reduced to such a degree that they require hardly any heating at all, with heat from the sun, occupants, household appliances and from extracted air meeting a large part of demand. Residents benefit from significantly lower bills and improved internal air quality.
Ten more of the £25 million Newfield Square development’s homes have high energy-saving features, including insulated window and door frames, heat recovery and solar thermal hot water systems.
Peter Martin, Sanctuary’s Group Director – Development, said: “To achieve the Passivhaus standard is fantastic and it underlines our commitment to delivering environmentally sustainable homes. “We’re proud to be able to provide residents with extremely energy efficient homes and look forward to delivering even more in the future.”
