HBS delivered an integrated mechanical and renewable solution for Barratt Home’s legacy development at the Monksbrook estate in Eastleigh. The mechanical division completed the installation of all new build plumbing and heating systems to 272 homes.
In 2012, Barratt Homes and First Wessex worked in partnership to regenerate the Monksbrook Estate in Eastleigh. The housing scheme will provide 272 eco-friendly homes for private sale and social rent. The scheme offers a mix of one, two, three, four and five bedroom homes and is due for completion in autumn 2016. HBS provided an integrated mechanical and renewable package, with the mechanical division delivering all new build plumbing, heating and gas requirements.
- The mechanical division delivered a full service plumbing and heating solution, managing the design, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of all gas, heating and water system requirements.
- Mechanical services included domestic hot and cold water, central heating, waste water systems, sanitary ware, and gas installation and rainwater systems.
- We carried out the installations adhering to our rigorous health and safety procedures. All systems complied with Gas Safe Regulations, Building Regulations and the standards set by our in-house Quality Management System.
- The new energies division installed solar PV systems to all 272 properties to ensure the scheme met its renewable obligations and achieved Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4.
- Our dedicated project manager carried out a full handover to First Wessex briefing them on the mechanical and renewable installations. We provided a bespoke O&M handover pack for each house type.
- Cheriton Road is a fine example of how HBS can integrate plumbing, heating and renewable systems into large-scale new build developments. The social residents will now enjoy energy-efficient renewable heating and low cost electricity.
“This development will largely be for affordable rent, which is good news for local families who are currently on the housing register. It is important that we carry on as much as possible with our planned developments and support the council in their quest to help those in housing need.”
Peter Walters, Chief Executive of First Wessex
