BCC social eco housing nearing completion

Work is nearing completion on three developments of new build timber frame council homes for Bristol City Council in the Henbury and Brentry area. In keeping with the City’s ambitions as European Green Capital, the housing has all been designed to Passivhaus Standards by Emmett Russell Architects. Working with the limited space available for soft landscape on these urban infill sites, Roundfield have made a strong feature of sustainable urban drainage systems which positively influence the landscape character. Water features have been designed to direct roof and paving run off through permeable paving, conveyance channels and bio-retention areas.
