Ground Source Review: South Western Housing Society, Tuckers Close


A mixed development of 1-bedroom flats and 3 and 2-bedroom semi-detached houses and bungalows, features individual Shoebox ground source heat pumps inside each home, connected by a Shared Ground Loop Array featuring boreholes drilled to a depth of up to 138m. The Shared Ground Loop Array delivers ambient temperature heat energy to each home, with the Shoebox heat pump then upgrading this to a higher temperature to provide the homeowner with low-cost, zero emission energy, and complete heating independence.

Kensa Contracting worked with builders EG Carter to deliver the project, which was officially unveiled on the 13th September 2018.

Donna Johnson, Chief Executive of South Western Housing Society, explains:

South Western Housing Society is very proud of its new development in Mark, which is an example of our approach to working in partnership with organisations to achieve the common goal of providing more housing for those in need in local communities.

Our commitment to providing good quality, high performing homes is one of the golden threads that runs through our business. It is testament to the project teams open relationship that we have been able to deliver these affordable homes and help families stay connected to their local area.
