Eco by design

Step Places embraces sustainability, innovation and technology to create homes that enhance the wellbeing of their owners and are kinder to the environment by design. Our first Urban House development, the homes at Waterside Gardens were built off site, using the very latest construction methods.

Each house includes air source heat pumps (ASHP) and a MVHR system which reduce power consumption and lower your household energy bills.

The ASHP system uses energy efficient refrigerant with a low environmental impact and is powered by 80% renewable energy from the air and 20% electricity. The smartphone app ensures you are always in full control of the heating and hot water output which also saves money on your bills.

To make sure you unlock the full potential of your new low energy, high specification home, we arrange a full face to face run-through on how all the systems work, including the ASHP and MVHR systems.

We will talk you through all the features, such as the high spec windows, the low maintenance of the recycled decking, and easy access points in the bathroom for plumbing inspections or repairs, as well as use of wider site benefits, including the electric charging points and bike store usage.
