World Green Building Week 2019

Article

This week is World Green Building Week, an annual campaign dedicated to raising awareness of green buildings and their effectiveness in helping achieve a range of global goals such as addressing climate change, creating sustainable and thriving communities, and driving economic growth.

Organised by World Green Building Council, and central to the campaign is the commitment to reducing the building and construction sector’s CO2 emissions to reach net-zero by 2050. So what does this mean to Acorn? In this blog, we take a closer look at some of the green features employed throughout our developments and the steps we are taking to achieve greener, more sustainable homes – now and for the future.

Our green credentials:

Longevity and sustainability are at the heart of all Acorn projects, whether in the buildings themselves or in the creation of communities – our developments are an investment in the future. Acorn’s green credentials include a list of green features that are employed throughout all Acorn developments (where possible). Such features include green roofs, mechanical ventilation with heat recovery, and photovoltaic solar panels to name just a few.

Green roofs

A green roof is a vegetative layer grown on a rooftop of a building which serves as a large contributor to the energy efficiency of buildings. Green roofs reduce the temperature of the building through shading and the process of evapotranspiration. According to Green Building Alliance, green roof production has grown significantly over the past decade; with a 115% increase in green roof production recorded from 2010 to 2011 alone.

Mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR)

An MVHR system provides fresh filtered air into a building whilst retaining the energy that has already been used in heating the building. When fitted correctly, an MVHR system will provide a constant supply of fresh filtered air whilst maintaining the air quality of the home. MVHR works by extracting air from the polluted sources around the home e.g. kitchen, bathroom, toilets and supplying air to the ‘living’ rooms e.g. bedrooms, living rooms, studies, etc.
