A £20 million waterfront residential development designed by Mosaic Architecture + Design, for Link Housing Association, has confirmed specification of Recoup’s WWHRS in the form of the Tray+ DSS-S2: our WWHRS integrated shower tray. The development will provide 132 units, of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, as part of a wider Granton Harbour masterplan. WWHRS is an integral part of the energy efficiency mix put forwards by Glasgow based Carbon Futures, who have been working collaboratively with the design team to develop the energy and sustainability strategy for the development which will exceed the latest 2015 Building Standards. Andrew Money, Director of Carbon Futures commented: “In Scotland, Aspect Silver Level 3 (Energy for Water Heating) under Section 7 (Sustainability) of the Scottish Building Regulations, requires at least 5% of a dwelling’s annual energy demand for water heating to be from heat recovery and/or renewable sources with little or no associated fuel costs. We have found WWHRS to be a very affordable and efficient means of achieving compliance with this regulation due to its low cost, ease of installation and high efficiency.” The M&E installation at Granton Harbour is expected to commence mid-way through 2018, with the first residents are expected to move into the new development in 2019. The installation will be carried out by James Frew Ltd with the main construction and project delivery by McTaggart Construction. Janice Russell, director of McTaggart Construction, added: “The local community will start to see this development, for Link Housing Association, take shape over the coming months and it will undoubtedly transform the area. We will provide high quality, sustainable homes for the Association’s prospective tenants in the long-term as well as jobs and training opportunities for locals during the construction of the homes.” Kieron Dudley, director of Recoup WWHRS added: “The specification of Recoup’s WWHRS integrated shower trays for these dwellings makes perfect sense. WWHRS is a cost-effective, energy efficiency technology that not only aids building compliance but also reduces the homeowners’ hot water bill by recovering a significant proportion of the heat energy that would otherwise go down the drain when showering.”
