2007 BER A Energy Efficient Housing Scheme

We were delighted to assist architect, Jay Stuart, during the construction phase of this housing scheme which consisted of 27 affordable houses which achieved a Building Energy Rating (BER) Level of A when they were completed in September 2007.

A detailed article describing the construction methods employed in this housing development was published in Construct Ireland shortly after it was completed.

In addition to insulating to very high standards ventilation is managed through passive stacks, a type of ventilation chimney serving each wet room, meaning kitchen and bathroom/utility rooms which appear like a normal ceiling extract vent in the rooms that they serve. External view of Passive stacks below followed by a photograph showing the airtightness detail at windows.

We would like to thank the photographer Anthony Hopkins for his permission to use his images from the Construct Irland magazine and its editor Jeff Colley.

Jay has very kindly provided a testimonial.

Very efficient gas boilers were fitted with an device to further enhance efficiency, see image above.
