Central to the design of Park House is the holistic concept of social, economic and environmental balance, supporting the use of low-impact materials, resources and energy. True to this vision, the building effortlessly exceeds government guidance in respect to sustainability.
The Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) sets world standards for best practice in sustainable design. Park House achieved a strong environmental performance, with a very good BREEAM rating.
Park House uses a building fabric designed to minimise solar heat gain and loss. High performance glazing is specified throughout the building, together with high thermal performance within its construction to minimise air leakage. All timber is from sustainable sources (FSC or PEFC certified).
