Victory at the RICS Awards 2011

We are delighted to announce our win at the 2011 RICS Awards in Leeds on the 20th May 2011. Our scheme 1 ZERO 4 has scooped the highly sought after ‘Best Residential’ award.

1 Zero 4 is a multi million pound green home in North Yorkshire (Harrogate). Building on the ethos that homes can be more than ‘eco’, more than ‘designer luxury’, more than ‘sustainable’ – an actual ‘life assistant’ that morphs to needs, wishes and requirements of residents – cocooning them in a warm blanket of lifestyle driven technology. It has been designed to have highly unusual levels of intelligence for a residential scheme.

As well as being beautiful from an architectural perspective – each component of the property is able to communicate with others making it a highly efficient and accountable scheme. The building infrastructure pushes beyond sustainable, combining high performance and renewable methods including double air source heat pump technology, solar and rainwater harvesting.

Complete home automation, AV and eco technology systems have been amalgamated into a single coherent system, all managed via a centralised AMX control system and ipad technology.
