Springfield Meadows is a multi award-winning project of 25 Climate Positive homes located in Southmoor, Oxfordshire.
Benefitting from diverse shared outdoor spaces and private gardens, it consists of 9 affordable houses and 16 private. They are all beautiful, high-performance homes, which provide comfortable, low-carbon living, thanks to the use of our Biond system. Biond is an off-site manufactured, closed panel timber frame construction, insulated with Lime-Hemp and natural fibre insulation. All 25 homes are built to the same Passivhaus standards. Springfield Meadows has been awarded One Planet Living® Global Leader status by the leading environmental charity Bioregional.
We think Springfield Meadows is the most sustainable development in the country because we’ve combined a few things that haven’t been done together before:
- Zero embodied carbon
- Net-Zero energy in use
- The second phase of the project locks up more carbon than it emits and generates more energy than it uses. We call this Climate Positive
- One Planet Living® Global Leadership
- BBO Wildlife Trust partnership
- Elimination of gas utilities to create an all electric development helping to decarbonise the grid
