The main driver for this project was to provide a quality, energy efficient building, with low running costs for residents. It includes:
- High efficiency boilers coupled with a group heating scheme
- Superior levels of insulation, resulting in the majority being A3 rating
- Small CHP
- High levels of airtightness
Almost all residents are benefitting from energy bills of around €400 per annum.
The judges were particularly impressed with the group heating arrangements and the innovative use of small scale CHP to meet the renewable energy demands of the current building regulations.
