Five new dwellings in conservation area


Great Dunmow, Essex


Highly sustainable design, low-carbon emission properties


Private developer

Sustainable homes are becoming more desirable than ever before.

New World Architectural used its building industry knowledge to ensure five new properties in Great Dunmow reached very specific levels of energy efficiency standards.

These five two-bedroom properties tick all the boxes when it comes to being green with sustainable timber frames, highly efficient boiler systems, low-carbon technology and meeting sustainable standards for a building project in a sought-after conservation area.

As part of the design process, New World Architectural offered sound advice and building plans that would satisfy the specific requirements of building control as well as ensuring the properties blended seamlessly into the look and feel of the surrounding area.

Services provided:

  • Took the lead project management role
  • Designed building plans with energy efficiency as key consideration
  • Carried out a number of building assessments throughout
  • Instructed a licenced sustainable homes assessor to review the properties

This was the first project I had tackled with such a firm focus on energy efficiency and the build was required to meet a number of criteria levels as instructed by building control. New World Architectural took over responsibility of this, carried out detailed research of this and ensured the requirements were set out to us very clearly. The plans were well executed and the residents are very proud of the results.
