Arc-Tech MU, a leading provider of multi-utilities services in Glasgow, is proud to announce that the Springfield Cross development in Glasgow’s East End has achieved Passivhaus certification, a rigorous standard of energy efficiency and comfort for new build housing. The development, which comprises 36 two and three-bedroom flats for social rent, was delivered by West of Scotland Housing Association and hub West Scotland, with CCG (Scotland) as the main contractor.
Passivhaus certification requires homes to have an enhanced envelope using thicker insulation and triple-glazing, as well as a mechanical ventilation heat recovery system that recycles heat and provides constant filtered air. These measures result in a much lower demand for energy, which drastically reduces annual fuel bills and carbon emissions, as well as improving indoor air quality and occupant health.
Arc-Tech MU’s expert project management capabilities ensured a quality and efficient programme of delivery in the installation of a duel-fuel, multi-utilities package that included gas, water and electrical services.
The Springfield Cross development is one of the first projects in Scotland to achieve Passivhaus certification, demonstrating Arc-Tech MU’s commitment to delivering sustainable and innovative solutions for its clients.< back
