At Evolve Housing, sustainability means creating functional, cost-effective dwellings that people can make their own homes.
We pay particular attention to the comfort and household running costs for residents – providing innovative, low-cost solutions to keeping our apartments cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
We only use hard-wearing construction materials, fittings and fixtures, considering their whole life-cost, not just the purchase price. Where possible we incorporate the following sustainability measures into our new buildings:
- NatHERS rating to 7 Stars;
- rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) panels to generate energy on site for common area and tenant usage;
- infrastructure within the building to create an embedded electricity network, reducing energy costs for tenants;
- charge points for electric cars.
