Edward Architecture was appointed by Kier Living to develop this residential scheme through RIBA Stages 4, 5 and 6 to BIM Level 2. The scheme, commissioned by Leeds City Council and NPS Leeds comprises 24 family homes and forms part of an extensive programme of new build council housing. Core to the development is a focus on quality and high standards of design, sustainability and energy efficiency.
The technical specification pushes the boundaries of housing standards by providing excellent energy efficiency to help tackle fuel poverty and reduce running costs for residents. The sustainable approach is based upon Passivhaus principles which includes triple glazing, whole house ventilation and a building fabric which achieves an air-leakage level of 1 cubic m/hour
