Building on its success at Ecobuild earlier this year, The Litchfield Group will be showing Greenbuild Expo visitors how low and zero carbon homes built to traditional British styles are being delivered today, cost effectively at Brookwood Farm near Woking.
The new homes development is being constructed using the company’s pioneering three-step building system which incorporates three key elements - Sheerframe HED windows, Masterdor Thermal door-sets and ICF Tech structural walls. These combine to provide a building envelope to roof height that is ideal for the construction of Code for Sustainable Homes Level 6 ‘zero carbon’ homes.
The Litchfield Group’s Mike Butterick, head of the newbuild windows and doors team, and Graeme Howarth, director of ICF Tech, will provide full details in their High levels at low costs seminar on 27th May (purple seminar room) which will explore how to achieve high Code levels while keeping costs down.
"There’s an urgent need throughout the building industry to find effective ways to deliver low and zero carbon homes which is why our live Brookwood Farm project has attracted so much interest,” says MD James Litchfield.
"Through the information and samples on our D8 stand and our comprehensive seminar, we are providing Greenbuild Expo delegates with the perfect opportunity to see how our integrated building system will help them meet the ever tougher Code for Sustainable Homes requirements - without having to rely on unproven green technologies or be faced with an unrealistic budget."
The Brookwood Farm development by William Lacey for Woking Borough Homes is one of the first of its kind, providing 12 much-needed new three and four bedroom houses built to Code level 5 and it looks set to provide a model for future cost-effective new homes development in the UK.
