A refurbishment project for two maisonette blocks at Erneley Close, Longsight, has given a remarkable facelift to the area, whilst providing equally dramatic energy savings for residents.
The blocks have been refurbished to the Passivhaus EnerPhit standard. The term Passivhaus refers to an advanced low energy construction standard for buildings that provides excellent health and comfort conditions being both cool in summer and warm in winter with minimal heating or cooling requirements.
Passivhaus buildings provide a plentiful supply of fresh air internally to ensure low C02 levels whatever the season, and to provide perfect air humidity levels for healthy conditions all year round. They are basically airtight, but provide excellent ventilation without wasting heat, and without cold draughts. Ventilation is achieved by a low-energy heat recovery ventilation system which uses outgoing warm air to heat the incoming cooler air. The extremely low energy consumption of such properties often results in cost savings to the occupier of more than 90% per year compared to ordinary buildings.
The Casey Group Ltd, have just completed this ambitious project for Eastlands Homes with developer R-Gen. Designed by Edelmann and Ebling, together with Passivhaus Designer Eric Parks, this is the largest such project to be undertaken so far in the UK.
