We're delighted to confirm we have recently completed the land purchase of our next development in North Bristol. Construction is due to start this summer and all properties will be SAP A rated for efficiency and to reduce environmental impact. Each home will feature ultra-efficient, low impact technologies to radically reduce energy costs and scale down carbon footprint.

Simon Taylor, MD of Autograph Homes says, “It makes absolute sense to include the latest energy saving technologies in new build homes, as well as ensuring a low carbon build, to help relieve some of the concern people currently have about energy bills.”

Sustainable features have been designed into the homes, including high levels of insulation, outstanding airtightness and a precision-built timber frame to minimise heat loss through the roof, walls and floor.

Simon continues, “Timber frame construction has the lowest CO2 cost of any commercial building material: it takes less energy to produce and build with and, of course, it’s easily recycled.”

The new homes will also include oversize, thermally insulated windows letting more natural daylight flood into the properties, illuminating the interiors, reducing reliance on artificial lights and helping to warm the house through solar gain, as well as cutting heat loss during winter.

Every property will be pre-fitted with PV panels; ground floor underfloor heating, and an electric vehicle charging point. Also fitted will be air source heat pumps and to store the excess energy generated by the PV panels, new homeowners can opt for a home battery, to reduce bills and carbon even further. Aerated taps and showers will be fitted, to reduce the amount of wasted water. And for those working from home more often, the properties will come with superfast fibre-optic broadband, Cat-5 cabling and a dedicated place to work.

Simon concludes, “Our aim is to create smart simple sustainability with homes that are not only beautiful to look at and live in, but amazingly economical to own.”

As always, we will be working with local suppliers and tradespeople, using British made products and materials where possible on this development.

We’d also like to say a big thankyou to all the planners, solicitors and our funders who have helped us with the application and purchase; Pegasus Group, Veale Wasborough Vizards, Pinsents, Weightmans, DAC Beachcroft, and Octopus Real Estate.
