The Sunday Times have asked if the North West Cambridge Development is the cleverest new town in Britain, due to the various sustainable elements that are being incorporated into the town and clever design of the homes to suit the academics that will be living there.
The Times’ article highlights some of the many sustainable measures featured in the new town, including solar panels on rooves of the new build homes, artificial lakes on the edge of the development to catch excess rainwater runoff and a “green superhighway” that will run right through the development.
calfordseaden has been working as NEC Supervisor and BIM Advisor on Phase 1 of the development which included the construction of the new primary school that opened in 2015. The school is just one part of the development, with Phase 1 also providing 700 key worker homes for qualifying University and College Staff, 450 market homes, 325 units for post-graduate housing, a Community Centre and Nursery facility.
