The practice received an award in the category of Best Planner: Renewable Energy Project at the prestigious Action Renewables Association Awards held at the Titanic Signature Building last Wednesday 6th February 2013. The award was for the Whiterock Grove social housing scheme for Clanmil Housing Association, which was completed to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 standard.
We have gleaned and built up a great deal of knowledge and expertise with regard to the Code for Sustainable Homes and general energy efficiency and sustainability of newbuild dwellings. We would be happy to meet and talk to any potential clients about the implications with regard to their own individual projects, whether it be a one off dwelling, social housing scheme or private housing development.

Practice Shortlisted in the 2013 Action Renewables Association Awards
McAdam Stewart Architects have been shortlisted in the 2013 Action Renewables Association Awards under the category of 'Best Planner: Renewable Energy Project' for the recently completed Whiterock Grove social housing scheme.
The scheme for Clanmil Housing is located just off the Whiterock Road in West Belfast and consists of a number of dwellings on a former 'brownfield' site, which have all been designed and constructed to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 standard. The houses are highly energy efficient using enhanced levels of thermal insulation and are extremely air tight, and therefore all fitted with computer controlled heat recovery ventilation systems. Solar PV panels on the roofs help to offset each dwelling's individual electricity usage and the scheme is to full Lifetime Homes and Secured by Design standard. All dwellings achieved EPC ratings of either 91 or 92 (high 'B' and 'A' rated).
The awards ceremony is due to be held on 6th February 2013 in the Titanic Signature Building in Belfast. We will of course let you know how we get on!
