The GreenSquare Development has mechanical and electrical performance design for 109 new homes, community centres and retail units at Westlands Drive, Dora Carr Close and Barns Road in Oxford.
This multi-million pound development started from the premise that everybody has the right to live in a thoughtfully designed home and that high quality public spaces are crucial to maintaining successful communities. The company behind the development, Hab Oakus includes Kevin McCloud, presenter of the long-running TV series Grand Designs.
CBG prepared a low and zero carbon strategy report which considered district heating systems and other forms of renewable energy such as photovoltaic. The homes were designed to meet Code 4/5 and the community centre achieved a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ Standard.
