Milnbank Housing Association
This design and build project was awarded based on the quality of our submission and sustainability proposals.
The building utilised Structural Insulated Panel construction (SIP) and therefore benefits from low energy costs due to a high level of insulation and air tightness. The panels were fabricated off site, which made installation fast and largely defect free.
The nursery also has a super insulated building envelope (floors wall and roof), high levels of air tightness, delivered through the SIP construction and minimum site generated waste. Further enhancements include high ‘U’ value external windows and doors.
Other ‘Green’ initiatives include rainwater chains for collection into water storage butts to encourage the children to re use water in the nursery garden, reduced water consumption and energy lighting features and natural ventilation methods. Heat reclamation from internal heated air is another energy saving feature.
