Housing - Cannock Mill


Previous Arrow Next Arrow




Jerram Falkus is currently on site in Colchester, Essex delivering the construction of 23 new build homes, a mixture of one and two bed flats and 17 houses with up to three bedrooms with garages and useful storage space in the under croft of the six flats. The development includes the refurbishment of an old listed Mill which will become a shared space for a range of social and domestic activities, and a base for community events.
 
The design team is led by one of the co-housing members, Anne Thorne, an award winning eco-architect. The buildings are designed and to be built to ‘Passivhaus’ standards to achieve exceptionally low running costs, and sustainable comfort and health. The Cannock Mill project is designed to Lifetime Homes standards which incorporates design features that increase ease of access throughout the home in order that the properties are not restricted for older people.
Design includes:
 
• High levels of thermal insulation and the absence of thermal bridging (where heat is lost through solid elements, window frames for example, to the outside)
 
• Highly insulated triple glazed windows and doors
 
• Recovery of heat from the ventilation system – referred to as mechanical ventilation and heat recovery (MVHR)
 
• A high degree of air tightness (windows still open but only when you want them to, i.e. no draughts).
