Lune Walk, Halton

South Lakes Housing in partnership with the Lune Valley Community Land Trust is delighted to have completed our first Passivhaus Standard scheme that had created 20 new affordable homes in Halton, Lancaster.

These high-quality homes have been built to exceptionally low-energy Passivhaus standard, helping to cut carbon emissions and reduce fuel poverty for residents. Passivhaus homes are built with meticulous attention to detail, rigorous design and construction according to principles developed by the Passivhaus Institute in Germany. These homes generally need 90% less energy for heating and hot water than standard buildings meaning that running costs are very low.

The houses have been constructed using airtight building fabric and will have high-performance windows and doors with insulated frames.

The project has been funded by South Lakes Housing, Lancaster City Council and Homes England and we worked in partnership to deliver these new homes with R P Tyson Construction, John Gilbert Architects, R G Parkins and Partners and Elliott Associates to deliver the homes.
