"Corby is home to Priors Hall Park one of the UK's leading demonstrators for sustainable community living, working and transportation."
Carbon Free Group provided systems integration and innovative design engineering up to RIBA 2 stage and developed the energy and sustainability strategy for this groundbreaking 47 zero carbon homes project. Our concept design included solar photovoltaic thermal, interseasonal energy storage via an earth energy bank, heat pumps, energy storage and the superinsulated MMC build system. CFG was retained to provide systems integration and design advice to the principal contractor. To ensure learning and feedback to the industry CFG introduced the project to the BEIS 'Building for 2050' program delivered by AECOM.
Carbon Free Group worked from the projects inception in 2015 to handover in 2020 in collaboration with the principal contractor, Staniforth Architects, Electric Corby, Power Transition, Caplin Solar, MES Building Solutions and Mastertherm Heat Pumps, AECOM & BEIS.
