Container-based Housing - the Green Energy Advantage
Green Energy: Part L Compliance
Following on from the Governments initiative to lower industry carbon emissions, the new Part L building regulations that were introduced in April 2006 require all commercial buildings to produce 27% less CO2 than was formerly allowed.
While many firms will struggle to fulfil this criteria the Container City™ system lends itself perfectly as a a cheap way to recycle industrial products.
How does Container City™ comply?
Minimal concrete foundations required (existing structure strong yet lightweight)
Little noise pollution (Off site construction and fast installation)
Natural ventillation (No need for air conditioning)
Photoelectric light sensitive cells (External lighting sensitive to light changes)
Thermally efficient (uses external walkways and lift towers, double thick insulation and sealed south facing glazed units)
Minimal artificial light required (fully glazed facades)
Separate light and heat controls for each unit. (modular system less open plan)
