Why Kier's Sustainable new homes in CB1 are better than the rest!

22nd April 2013

When choosing a new home, there are many factors to consider- and environmental issues are increasingly high on the modern home buyer's agenda

Why Kier's Sustainable new homes in CB1 are better than the rest!

Kier Partnership Homes takes its green responsibility very seriously, which is why Trinity Mews – its unique development of just 14 contemporary new homes in CB1 – is built to Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.


In layman’s terms, this means a whole raft of eco features that are good for the environment, as well as your household budget. These include: energy efficient wall construction, photovoltaic panels, electricity smart meters and 100% energy efficient lighting. The sanitaryware is water saving, and a water butt and compost bin are supplied. Cycle storage is also provided for each home and a free bicycle is included. With a fabric-first approach, providing a level of construction over and above the standard building regulations, Kier has also implemented ecologists’ recommendations to improve species diversity across the development.


While some other developers in the area may offer homes built to Level 4, they do this as an upgrade for an additional cost. At Trinity Mews, Kier includes the sustainable features within the purchase price, so not only does the increased energy efficiency mean that your running costs are reduced, but you actually pay less for your new home.
