Lancaster Park brings the future of housebuilding into the current day and will see 219 low-energy and near-zero carbon homes created in Belfast
Leading property developer, Fraser Millar, has unveiled a pioneering, £70M flagship project, which will be the largest Passivhaus housing development in the whole of the UK and Ireland
The Lancaster Park development, which spans 26 acres, brings the future of housebuilding into the current day, and will see the build of 219 low-energy and near-zero carbon homes created in Belfast. The project will set the standards for Northern Ireland’s greener future in construction and domestic living.
These ‘sustainable homes of the future’ will be part of the most environmentally-friendly large-scale development ever built in the UK or Ireland, using cutting-edge technology and advanced building methods within the gold-standard of Passivhaus specification, which will significantly reduce running costs and increase efficiency.
The 219 homes will cut home heating costs, consistently below £500 per year, per house, which represents a saving of approximately £800 for the average home, per annum (based on current NI fuel prices). The way the houses are designed and built eradicates the reliance on fossil fuels for the home-owner.
Passivhaus buildings provide a high level of occupant comfort while using very little energy for heating and cooling. They are built with meticulous attention to detail and rigorous design and construction according to principles developed by the Passivhaus Institute in Germany and will be certified through an exacting quality assurance process.
Thanks to the Passivhaus design methods, including enhanced insulation and airtight sealing, alongside solar panels and air source heat systems, Lancaster Park will be the first major development in Northern Ireland to boast an EPC A rating.
