Bright sparks given lessons in energy saving

22 June 2012

Lively youngsters at a Wiltshire school have been given lessons in energy saving thanks to Charles Church Wessex.

The housebuilder invited pupils from Prior Park Preparatory School in Cricklade, to see at first-hand how its sustainable homes were being built at Corinium Via in Cirencester.

The development, off London Road, features a range of luxury properties constructed using Space4 timber frame technology.  As a result, each Charles Church home boasts improved insulation and air-tightness to create cosier and more comfortable living spaces.  For home owners this means a 50 per cent reduction in heating costs, lower noise levels and a 70% reduction in shrinkage compared to a masonry build.

Pauline Fletcher, sales and marketing director for Charles Church Wessex said: “It’s great to see the children take a keen interest in energy saving, which is important to safeguard everyone’s future.  We specialise in building energy efficient homes, so I am sure they have learned a lot from looking round our development.”

Clare Chadwick, year five tutor at Prior Park, said: “The visit gave the children an excellent insight into how a responsible builder such as Charles Church is addressing the need to save energy and going out of their way to design energy-efficient homes.

“The children have learned a great deal, which will definitely help them with their future school work.”
