‘Greenhaus’ is the next chapter in the regeneration of the Chapel Street area of Salford Central and is currently Greater Manchester’s largest Passivhaus-targeted, affordable housing scheme.
We have been appointed as MEP design consultants on the project, which will include 44 one-bedroom and 52-two bedroom apartments constructed across G+8nr floors with shell commercial unit at ground floor, in addition to a new public square. Electric vehicle charging spaces will also be provided on Islington Way as part of the development, designated for public use.
Salford housing provider Salix Homes has been selected to manage the 96 new affordable apartments.
Salix and ECF aim to deliver the development to achieve certified Passivhaus ‘Classic’ standard. This is proposed to be achieved by employing an all electric strategy; including residential ventilation via high efficiency MVHR units, heat pump technology, enhanced building fabric performance including triple glazing, and significantly improved air tightness.
We are pleased to be working alongside Buttress Architects, The Alan Johnston Partnership, Max Fordham, Appleyard & Trew and Planit IE.
This project is part of the English Cities Fund’s wider £650 million regeneration scheme transforming the area of Salford Central. The over 50-acre masterplan contains commercial, retail and residential buildings creating a new and vibrant destination for people to live, work and relax.
English Cities Fund is a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and Homes England in conjunction with Salford City Council.
