Take a tour of Carrowbreck Meadow Passivhaus Development Friday, 28 October, 2016

Hamson Barron Smith is marking the completion of its Carrowbreck Meadow Passivhaus scheme by opening up one of the new homes for accompanied viewings with the architects.

Taking place on 11 and 12 November, this also forms part of the International Passive House Association’s event – International Passive House Days 2016 – in which over 300 Passivhaus schemes worldwide open their doors.

Carrowbreck Meadow is the only scheme in the east of England to open its doors for the event.

Designed by Hamson Barron Smith for developer Broadland Growth Limited, the 14 home project comprises a range of two to four bed houses – the sale of which are a mixture of open market and shared equity.

As well as achieving Passivhaus certification, the dwellings were designed to be Level 1 compliant with the National Housing Standards Review, which presented an added challenge in the efficient use of space.

Associate Architect Andrew Conway said: “We are delighted to be involved in the 2016 International Passive House Days and we would like to invite anyone interested in the design of these new homes to join us for a technical tour. This project has been designed with meticulous attention to detail and we are very much looking forward to sharing our experiences as well as some of our wider Passivhaus design expertise.”

Constructed by RG Carter, the project is also the first for Broadland Growth Limited – a joint venture between Broadland District Council and NPS Group. The company was set up to generate income to support council services as well as deliver homes which will operate with a low carbon output and be an exemplar for future development in the area.

Tours are available by appointment only on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 November between 10am and 4pm.To book a place, please view our Passivhaus database here and email us at hello@hamsonbarronsmith.com
