ClearyDoyle is delighted to announce that our 20-unit Jameson Heights housing project in Kilmacanogue for Wicklow County Council has been commended in the Housing Category at the inaugural Towards NetZero Ireland awards.
The awards were devised to help drive the net-zero concept and to acknowledge and support those showing leadership in the net-zero arena during this transitionary stage.
John Doyle, Joint Managing Director, ClearyDoyle, attended the awards lunch at the RDS, Dublin, with client representative, Diarmuid McGowan, Wicklow County Council; Architect, Michael Lysaght, Deaton Lysaght; and Barry Dalton, Contracts Manager, ClearyDoyle.
Designed by Deaton Lysaght Architects, the 20 A-rated houses in Jameson Heights achieved a u-value of 1.6W/m²K, with primary heating and hot water from air-to-water heat pumps feeding radiators and a tank, with primary electricity supply from photovoltaic roof panels. Each house also has a highly efficient Aereco direct control ventilation system.
John Doyle commented about the commendation, “Jameson Heights is one of a number of social housing schemes ClearyDoyle has completed for Wicklow County Council and other local authorities over the past few years. We have also enjoyed an ongoing relationship with project architect Deaton Lysaght across some of these projects.
“I am particularly delighted Jameson Heights has been recognised in this way, as the ClearyDoyle team and our supply team worked extremely hard to exceed client expectations in terms of how the houses perform in sustainability terms. We have shown that it is possible to build A2 BER energy-efficient and low-energy housing without a radical approach to construction or an over-reliance on complex renewable technologies.”
