The GHA’s next site visit is to CITU’s Little Kelham development in Sheffield. This will be in the afternoon of the 7th October 2015. This visit is free to members of the GHA or £50 + VAT for all non-members. PPE will be required.
Little Kelham is an award-winning development of 157 one to four bedroom low-carbon homes in the Kelham Island area of Sheffield.
The Citu Houses built at Little Kelham are super-insulated and virtually airtight, meaning they don't need any central heating. Instead, they are warmed passively by the heat given off from things like electrical appliances and the residents themselves. The homes are also digitally-enabled, allowing residents to control and monitor energy usage from a smartphone or tablet.
The project, which will see the restoration of several important former industrial buildings, will also have office, retail and creative workspace, as well as a public square, communal gardens and a boules court.
If you wish to come along on this site visit, (PPE will be required) please email Roger Southcott: firstname.lastname@example.org
