Projex has just completed work on a new-build luxury four-bedroom home in the market town of Knaresborough, North Yorkshire.
Working with Olbe Developments Priory View is a contemporary eco house constructed using an on-site building technique called Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF), a method brought to recent prominence by renowned property expert and TV presenter, Sarah Beeny, in the Channel 4 series, New Life in the Country.
The Insulated construction technique has reduced the heat loadings on the house and the cutting edge heating provision has reduced the ongoing energy costs to less than £40 a month for the 2,000 sq ft property.
Its state-of-the-art eco credentials continue with bamboo flooring, PV Panels and Air Source Heat Pump, enabling the property to exceed standard building regulations and reach a predicted EPC rating of A+, making it one of the most energy efficient houses in the district.
The property is located on a difficult, restricted site in Knaresborough’s conservation area on the land of an existing house, with limited access and the need for the front elevation to be retained due to the steep slope of the site.
Projex has been involved since planning permission was granted and has been responsible for developing architectural drawings, coordinating engineers and other consultants and the contractor to successfully deliver the project on time and budget.
Joe Unwin of Projex says:
“Priory View really is a fantastic looking family home that has been superbly designed, and one that truly respects the environment.”
Agents Linley & Simpson say interest in Priory View has been astonishing and an offer was accepted on the property within a week of going to market.
