Sanctuary was delighted to welcome delegates from COP26 to our Newfield Square development in Glasgow this week as part of the Sustainable Buildings of Glasgow tour.

The development has provided a total of 178 new homes for social rent, New Supply Shared Equity (NSSE), and Mid Market Rent.

As part of the development, 10 properties have been included in a pilot study in partnership with Glasgow City Council to investigate how varying levels of sustainability could be achieved within a typical 2-bedroom dwelling, with a view to inform the future baseline standard for affordable housing in the city.

The main development is designed to achieve the current building standards and five semi-detached blocks have been configured to achieve ever-increasing levels of sustainability and energy efficiency, including two accredited to the Passive House Standard.

We are now undertaking post-completion monitoring over the next year to establish benefits of each pilot model, in terms of resident comfort, ease of operation, and the true reduction of fuel bills.
