Eco-homes set the standard for Sheffield

A regeneration partnership is setting the green standard for Sheffield, with a £5.5m project to construct 35 new eco-friendly homes.

Sheffield Housing Company (SHC) is working with energy and regeneration specialist EQUANS to create the 19 three and four bedroomed houses and 16 two bedroomed apartments at Norfolk Park. The homes will be available for sale on the open market.

EQUANS is the new brand for global energy company ENGIE’s regeneration and services-led activities.

The properties will feature electric vehicle charging points and solar photovoltaic (PV) panels to help residents live a modern and green lifestyle, whilst also contributing to Sheffield City Council’s target to be a zero carbon city by 2030.*

The Energy Saving Trust estimates a typical 3.5-kWp PV panel system could reduce the average energy bill by up to £310/year.**

Norfolk Park has a rich history and has benefitted from significant investment in recent years, with its surrounding parklands and proximity to the city centre making it an attractive place to live.

Work is due to start on site this month with the properties released for sale in 2022.
