5 New Dwellings - Southampton

Local developer Knight Homes purchased a large plot with the intention of demolishing an existing property and replacing with five new properties.

The project was required by local planning policy to meet Code for Sustainable Homes level 4 standards.

We were able to provide the developer with a site strategy to maximise the energy and sustainability credits available. The final project incorporated traditional gas boilers and an array of photovoltaic solar panels on each property together with a good fabric efficiency.

Upon completion of the building works our onsite testing engineers visited site to certify the Air Permeability rating for the building control officer’s final inspection and completion certificate, also our energy assessment team completed the EPC's and as built SAP calculations. Our team were also able to provide Knight Homes with same day Code for Sustainable Homes certification.
