This new 56 bed care home on the site of a former derelict farm on the outskirts of Fair Oak was required to address Eastleigh Borough Council’s environmental planning policies. SRE supported the development from concept stage through to completion and hand over to the care home provider. By supporting both the architect and the developer SRE enabled the scheme to comfortably achieve BREEAM Multi-Residential ‘Very Good’. As a result SRE provided a robust approach to deliver future BREEAM schemes, including material selection, use of gas fired heat pumps and the incorporation of appropriate site management, services and metering strategies that has been adopted on present schemes.

‘We have been appointing SRE as Breeam/Code assessors’ since 2010 and value their constructive input and advice throughout our various schemes progress. They provide a very personal service which complements Highwood’s approach.'
