Greenoak is a small developing housing association working in Surrey and Sussex. Since 2000 we have addressed the linked themes of sustainability, design quality and construction performance through a quality-driven development process. Our central tenet is ‘liveability’: simple, passive solutions that will minimise the risk of problems for tenants and achieve good building performance. Future-proofing is achieved by allowing for renewable energy systems to be retro-fitted. The latest scheme in West Sussex is designed to CSH level 4 and is the first scheme to use renewable energy: a solar hot water system.
With increased concern about global warming, Kingerlee Homes made the decision to build homes to much higher standards. Our first such scheme at Lincoln Grove at Bladon in Oxfordshire achieved the highest possible environment build standard, known as EcoHomes Excellent. We believe it is the first scheme of its kind in Oxfordshire.We are a founder member of the Good Homes Alliance and as such we are committed to monitor the performance of our new homes in terms of energy use and thermal performance over a two year period. We believe this approach is innovative and separates us from the rest of the industry.We hope you will come with us on this journey which we believe will improve the environment for all.
