Flood resilient low energy house complete

Working for long-term client South Western Housing Society gcp has completed a rural exception site scheme that is both low energy and designed to be resilient to flooding. The scheme at East Huntspill near Bridgwater comprises eight houses and four flats built on an isolated, redundant Somerset County Farm site.

The energy performance of the development has been monitored via a co-heating test following a successful funding application to the Technology Strategy Board TSB Building Performance Evaluation programme.

The project has also been shortlisted for thePremier Guarantee Social Housing Development of 2012 award
