Blackrock Passivhaus & Zero Carbon Scheme Gathers Pace

Our Blackrock Street development in Beswick for One Manchester contains 22 homes (a mix of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses) for social rent and is a completely low carbon scheme. Two of the three bedroom properties have achieved zero carbon status, making them the first low carbon social homes in the UK.

Expertise from GWPA Passivhaus Designer Daniel Tomlinson, Eco-res and main contractor John Southworth Builders have allowed the team to reach this high level, while making sure we met the criteria for low carbon living and much needed affordable homes.
