Virido

Situated within the leafy suburbs of Cambridge, Virido sets out to offer an ambitious new vision for modern living.

The Project

In Cambridge's suburbs sits an attractive new development dedicated to creating a sense of community and to promoting sustainability.

Location:
Cambridgeshire
Contractor:
Hill
Build System:
Kingspan TEK
The 208 assorted townhouses and apartments are formed into eight quads, focused around a central green space, and connected by tree-lined streets. The buildings are clad in FSC-certified timber and brick, subtle enough so as not to detract from the greenery.

Kingspan TEK™ structural insulated panels (SIPs) have been used to form the structural roof and walls, delivering the homes to an extremely high level of thermal efficiency, equivalent to Level 5 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. TEK's sophisticated jointing system virtually eliminates thermal bridging and attains a high level of airtightness.

Excellent air leakage rates of below 1.5 air change per hour @ 50 pa were recorded for each building upon the project's completion. A mechanical ventilation and heat recovery (MVHR) system ensures a steady supply of fresh air throughout the homes, and also reduces the energy required to heat them, keeping in line with the development's sustainable ethos.

Self building is one of the most exciting events in a lifetime, but it requires lots of decisions. What's within the walls is just as important as how they look on the outside.
