Greencore named a finalist for the Property Week Resi Awards in the ‘Climate Crisis Initiative’ category.

We are delighted to announce that we are a finalist for the Property Week Resi Awards in the  ‘Climate Crisis Initiative’ category.

At Greencore we have developed the concept of climate positive homes. We manufacture closed timber frame panels in our factory and use these panels to build the superstructure of our homes. As a result we lock up more carbon than we emit at the construction stage, through the use of timber and bio-based materials. The structure of a typical Greencore home is therefore better than net-zero in terms of embodied carbon. Our homes are highly energy efficient and are powered by renewables and electricity, rather than gas. As a result, our homes can generate more energy than they use. We also seek to create significant gain on wildlife / biodiversity on each of our developments.
