Sustainable Living

Caring about the environment

Tavern Quay will achieve Level 3 or 4 Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH). Homeowners can enjoy financial and environmental benefits of achieving high code for Sustainable Home. The Code measures the sustainability of a home against nine design categories, rating the ‘whole home’ as a complete package.

 

Design categories are: Energy and CO2 Emissions, Water, Materials, Water Run-off, Waste, Pollution, Health and Wellbeing, Management and Ecology.

Tavern Quay homes are built with energy and water-efficiency in mind

They feature a high quality, highly insulated building shell with low air-permeability. Other efficiencies include:

 

  • Low energy lighting installed throughout every unit.

 

  • Hot water and heating from a combined heat and power (CHP) plant.

 

  • Low water use sanitary ware with dual-flush WCs.

 

  • ‘Nest’ wifi-controlled thermostats that allow the central heating to be controlled by a smartphone app from anywhere in the world – providing convenience, economy and sustainability.

 

  • High ‘u’ value.

 

  • Use of revolutionary building materials.
The most sustainable environments are those that have surfaces that don’t demand constant maintenance. nanoShell’s approach to creating a sustainable future environment is ground breaking.

 

  • Performs far longer than traditional toxic coatings.

 

  • State of the art German technology.

 

  • NanoShell’s glass coatings provide a long lasting durable layer of protection.

 

  • Exterior surfaces no longer need regular cleaning as the invisible coatings self-clean with rainwater, meaning that debris will not stick on the surface.

 

  • Reduce your commute and create a home office since ample space is provided for plug sockets and a telephone point close to a desk.
