Designing “Zero Carbon” housing – learnings from Killynure Green

In the context of a climate emergency and growing overall awareness of the total environmental cost of development, the energy performance of housing has perhaps never been more crucial.  Killynure Green, developed by Choice Housing, is an award winning project in Carryduff which was the first housing scheme in Northern Ireland to achieve Level 5 of the Code for Sustainable Homes and is one of the largest schemes of this type in the UK.

RSUA has organised an hour long seminar with Brian Rankin, Choice’s Energy Manager, to share learnings from the scheme around the energy performance of the development and the benefit to its residents.
