The new home is the first in an innovative partnership between specialist care home architect and project management consultancy Northstar and sustainability experts Sustainable Construction Services (SCS).
The building has been designed to be thermally efficient which means it will retain heat in the winter and stay cool in summer for longer. The 80-bed home will have solar panels on the roof to provide electricity and use environmentally friendly air source heat pumps to heat or cool the building.
The home will also have a beautiful living roof. This roof top garden is not only a wonderful feature for residents but will also benefit the local wildlife and, alongside a sustainable drainage system, will help reduce water pollution.
