Laurieston Phase 2 is a £18 million development of 173 dwellings for sale, located within one of Glasgow City Council’s Transformational Regeneration Areas (TRA), for Urban Union Ltd who are a joint venture partnership between McTaggart Construction and The Robertson Group, which regenerate urban areas across Scotland. The project consists of three and four-bedroom townhouses and one and two-bedroom flats.
The development is designed to achieve Bronze level under Section 7 (Sustainability) of the 2013 Building Standards using a fabric first approach.
Carbon Futures worked with the design team from inception to develop a cost-effective and practical energy and sustainability strategy for the development.
As energy consultants, our focus was to develop an enhanced fabric strategy through increased levels of insulation, minimising heat loss. By adopting a fabric first approach, the building design will maximise the performance of components and materials that make up the building fabric resulting in reduced capital and operational costs, improved energy efficiency and a reduction in carbon emissions.
Additional services provided by Carbon Futures included Approved Certifier of Design (Energy) certification, Building Regulation Compliance through the provision of SAP Calculations and provision of Energy Performance Certification.
