High performance homes to be built on new development at Marcham

Greencore Construction has signed a design and build contract to deliver three new eco homes at Marcham, near Abingdon, for local developer Oxford Advanced Living.

The three new homes will all be built using Greencore’s proprietary Biond system of offsite timber frame construction, and will target a negative carbon footprint and very low ongoing energy requirement.

Advanced technology for high energy efficiency

Due to go on sale early in 2018, the new homes at Walnut Mews on Mill Road, Marcham include a pair of three-bedroom semi-detached homes in grounds, plus a single two-bed house with a beautiful stone frontage on the former site of an old workshop.

The homes will all be built using Greencore’s proprietary Biond system of offsite timber frame construction, a highly environmentally sustainable system which has been tested and monitored in an international research project by the University of Bath.

They will feature high performance technologies and materials, designed to maximise health, comfort and economy for the homeowners.

Ian Pritchett, managing director of Greencore Construction, said:

“The Marcham site is just the first of several new eco home developments that we will be progressing over the next six months. Passivhaus design principles will allow us to build extremely low energy homes which we know are much in demand in Oxfordshire and which will fit sensitively into this historic village.”

Greencore specialises in helping small developers and self-builders in Oxfordshire build high performance, low carbon buildings using natural materials. These homes are designed to provide better health at home, thanks to improved indoor air quality and living comfort, and significant environmental and energy-saving benefits.
