Leading property developer, Fraser Millar, will be releasing five new turnkey homes this week in the next phase of their flagship £70M Lancaster Park development – the largest certified developer-led Passivhaus residential project in the whole of the UK and Ireland.
The homes are all built to Passivhaus low energy building standards, helping to dramatically reduce home-heating bills for buyers whilst improving living standards. They consist of a range of three and four-bedroom, semi-detached and detached family homes, three of which have solar PV panels.
Launched in 2021, Lancaster Park will span a total of 219 houses across 26 acres and is the first large-scale residential development with an Energy Performance Certificate A Rating (EPC A), meaning optimum energy efficiency, unrivalled in any other development of its size in Northern Ireland. They all feature enhanced insulation and airtight sealing, alongside electric Nilan Compact P exhaust air source systems and can consume up to 90 per cent less energy than older buildings and 75 per cent less energy than the average new build. The homes require almost no heating, no reliance on fossil fuels and will have cleaner air inside than out, thanks to a sophisticated built-in air filtration system. It is anticipated that all future properties will now have solar PV panels fitted as standard.
David Millar, Fraser Millar said: “As the world faces a very uncertain winter in terms of home-heating prices, these homes have been, and will continue to be hugely popular.
“One of the major benefits of a Passivhaus property is the rigorous design and construction practices developed by the Passivhaus Institute in Germany. Lancaster Park homes totally eradicate the reliance on fossil fuels, such as oil and gas, for the home-owner and go a long way towards reaching net zero carbon building. The air-filtration system also means the air is purer and cleaner, helping to reduce the effects of allergies, asthma and other respiratory complaints.
“As a further commitment to setting the standards for greener and more economical living, all future Lancaster Park homes will be fitted with solar PV panels, which will significantly help our homeowners to counteract the effects of the recent energy price increases.
David continued: “We are proud to play a leading role in the future of home building in Northern Ireland.”
Located just 15 minutes from Belfast city centre, near the Saintfield Road, the next phase of Lancaster Park’s Passivhaus project go on sale this week.
