Fenland Eco Low Rise
Retrofit for the future
Fenland eco low rise is a retrofit for the future phase 1 funded project for Circle Anglia Housing Association. The project aimed to reduce the carbon footprint of this pair of bungalows by 80%. Our proposal increased usable space by converting the bungalows into houses using 3 prefabricated modules, fitting the local need. The new houses were designed to reach Passivhaus standard.
The scheme incorporated high levels of insulation, good airtightness, MVHR, Solar thermal, ASHP, A++ electrical goods and experimental thermal blinds. Interestingly the amount of PV needed to reach 80% total carbon reduction, reduced when the additional floor was added.
