Project details:

Hazelmead is a 53 unit community housing development over nine buildings, on the edge of Bridport. Delta Q were appointed by min contractor C G Fry to provide building energy advice and certify the buildings to the AECB Building Standard.

The buildings are of timber frame design, constructed as SiPs panels brought to site with windows installed by Seven Ooaks Modular. The buildings have direct electric heating with domestic hot water heat pumps. All buildings have a large PV array which is part of a microgrid with localized battery storage.

We have undertaken PHPP & thermal bridge modelling, advised on airtightness detailing and sequencing, advised on heating and domestic hot water plant and systems and supported the site team in achieving airtightness, gap free insulation and their evidence gathering. The first block is nearing completion in June 2022.
