Blueprint, the joint venture developer linking Aviva Investors and Nottingham City Council worked on a design that delivered a high specification of fabric efficiency merged with economic use of hot water, ensuring that there was minimal wasted energy.
“Our objective was to build a quality family environment, which was competitively priced to own and run. The inclusion of Showersave has helped greatly in achieving this” Rachel Hopwell, Blueprint.
The 35 homes designed by Blueprint are now sold and occupied. Over the last 12 months the owners have seen utility bills that most of us could only dream of. Typically the average gas bill on these family homes is coming in at less than £30 per month. With some homes hovering nearer to £15 per month.
“The low running cost being experienced by our customers is a tremendous vindication of the hard work we put into these house designs” Ashley Walters, Igloo Regeneration.
The aim of this project was to design and build homes which were energy efficient and commercially viable. Showersave, albeit only one element of the overall build has contributed towards achieving the project objectives.
The simplicity and cost-effectiveness of Showersave makes it an attractive technology for projects aimed at reducing energy and maintenance costs.
In bringing Hobart and Pitcairn to market, Blueprint has demonstrated that commercially funded private housing can be delivered alongside greatly increased energy efficiency.
“This project has brought together some of the pre-eminent names in UK off-site construction. Showersave is a perfect addition to the project, given its impressive energy saving credentials, ease of installation and zero maintenance requirements. This is the first UK installation of the Showersave QB-21 Cyclone; which offers even greater efficiency and is aesthetically very unique. Feedback from the site and the installation team has been extremely positive and we look forward to continuing our work with the team at Showersave.”
