New eco-friendly scheme in East Yorkshire
Published: 20 March, 2012
HULL: Yuill Homes has started work on an eco-friendly, affordable housing scheme at Swanland Village.
The development will see Yuill Homes deliver 26 new sustainable homes in partnership with Railway Housing Association for local residents to rent - including 16 new two bed apartments, as well as ten two bedroom bungalows.
Part-funded by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), the scheme will include an innovative sedum roof which will be planted on top of the new apartment complex - transforming a typically unused space into a microclimate for birds and insects. Set to be planted with an array of herbs and flowers, the roof will help to improve the insulation of the building as well as reducing the surface run off of rainfall.
