Sustainable Living

Caring about the environment

Leven Wharf 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 Well-being, Management and Ecology.

Leven Wharf 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 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 surface will no longer need regular cleaning as the invisible coatings will self-clean with rainwater, meaning that debris will not stick on the surface

 

  • Reduce your commute and create a home office with space provided for plug sockets and telephone point close to a desk
