Europa Way Triangle housing scheme demonstrates net zero carbon

Net zero construction consultancy and calculation services supported the developer in delivering the scheme

The Europa Way Triangle development in Leamington Spa shows that net zero dwellings can be constructed well before the UK government’s legally binding target of ‘net zero’ by 2050. This was in part thanks to net zero construction consultancy services provided by the team at Darren Evans.

Warwick District Council (WDC) has declared it will be a zero carbon authority by 2025, and will help the district become carbon neutral by 2030. WDC targeted ambitious carbon reductions in all possible areas, looking at embodied carbon and aiming for a 100% reduction in regulated carbon for the 54 new homes at Europa Way.

Darren Evans provided net zero construction consultancy and calculation services to support the developer delivering the scheme, and the architect responsible for producing the working drawings.

  • SAP calculations to demonstrate regulated carbon reductions.
  • Consultancy with the developer to help deliver carbon reductions without over-specification.
  • Working with the architect to develop thermal bridging details for timber frame construction and calculating psi values.
