Environmental Best Practice in Design

Westleigh always strive to find best practice through design, not only does this increase our quality and standard of build but these methods are the key building block in our commitment to protecting the environment.

At our recently completed Nuneaton site, we piloted the use of the Insulslab foundation method, which provided a more cost effective method than the more traditional methods.

Cost was not our only priority; the system reduced our carbon footprint as the amount of concrete we would have used was vastly reduced.

We pride ourselves on our regeneration of brownfield sites and this system suited the ground conditions.

We targeted meeting Level 3 of the ‘Code for Sustainable Homes’ with our timber frame system.

Insulslab offered a thermally efficient and complementary ground system.

The system also resulted in minimal excavation so muck away from site was vastly reduced.

The whole system reduced our emissions, footprint, traffic out of site and regenerated the area into a scheme with exceptional energy savings.
