Documentation – A pack of relevant manuals for each apartment will be provided on completion and handover. The Alfred Place development also benefits from a 10 year NHBC warranty.

Eco Efficiency – Each of the 14 homes will feature the “Ultra-warm” thermal performance specification specifically created to meet the new enhanced Scottish Technical Standards which came into force on the 1st of October 2010. The new standards will drive forward the Scottish Government’s target of driving down CO2 emissions for all new housing.

The Ultrawarm performance specification has 3 fabric elements: ULTRAwall, ULTRAloft and ULTRAroof. Both ULTRAloft and ULTRAroof give enhanced thermal performances in excess of 30% over previously used constructions. ULTRAwall has been developed not just to give a 30% betterment over the previous building standards but it also helps to reduce the air leakage from the home with its well sealed high emissivity service cavity. All the glass fibre insulation quilt used within ULTRAwarm is made from 80% recycled glass bottles and is the first insulation quilt to be free of formaldehydes.

In addition each house will have solar photo voltaic panels (PV) fitted to their roof. PV panels convert light from the sun into electricity. This electricity can be used in each of the homes. The panels will mounted on the flat part of each roof and will not be visible from ground floor level. It is hoped that the installation of the panel will result in a 20% saving on the electricity of each house. The saving is on top of an already thermally efficient designed home.
