Claiming to be the largest gas free housing development in the UK, Equans (formerly Engie) have been chosen for a new development and have now begun construction on a project to build 140 affordable homes for social housing landlord Stonewater. The Flansahw development is to be built on the site of a former quarry off Flanshaw Lane, near Wakefield, as part of a £17m project.
Nathan Bough, Equans regional director said that the project allows them to use their zero carbon and regeneration expertise.The houses will be powered by both solar electricity panels and air source heat pumps.
The project will combine houses, flats and bungalows ranging from one to four-bedrooms. Work is planned for completion in May 2024.
