The 36 homes on the Cawrey Homes’ Fielding Meadow development are built to level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes, using a ‘fabric first’ approach, with H+H aircrete blockwork, coupled with different renewable technologies. Air Source Heat Pumps deliver hot water and heating to underfloor pipework on the ground floors and radiators on first floors. Fabric heat losses are reduced by highly insulated ground floors, 200mm wide filled wall cavities and ‘green’ (sedum) roofs. Roof fins provide passive ventilation to reduce overheating in summer, solar PV panels generate electricity and energy efficient appliances are included in every home.
