HBS Group Southern supply an integrated renewable energy and mechanical package to Barratt Home’s Cheriton Road development in Eastleigh. The inclusion of solar PV systems to 272 new homes ensured the scheme met the energy performance targets set.
In 2012, Barratt Homes and First Wessex worked in partnership to start the regeneration of the Monksbrook Estate in Eastleigh. The award-wining Cheriton Road scheme includes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes for private sale and social rent through housing association, First Wessex and reached its completion in Autumn 2016.
HBS Group Southern capitalised on their expertise in the housebuilding sector by delivering an integrated mechanical and renewable energy package to 272 new homes at Cheriton Road. By ensuring the scheme met its renewable obligations and achieved Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4, HBS were able to make a significant contribution to the success of this large-scale regeneration project.
