Willows is a 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom family home with three allocated parking spaces in a small, unique development of just 4 bespoke ultra efficient, low energy properties. Pivot Developments are one of the leading green technologies companies to deliver a ‘best in class’ energy conservation solution for residential homes. All homes have been awarded an EPC ‘A’ rating which was highly commended at the 2023 National Federation of Builders awards for Environmental and Sustainability Initiative and nominated for Small House Builder of the Year.

Willows green technology encompasses an 8.5Kw Ecodan air source heat pump which paired with air tightness Pro clima intello plus air barrier and multifoil insulation to all external walls is predicted to reduce energy consumption by at least 50% compared to the average UK home. Solar panels enabled with solar iBoost technology, allow unused PV energy for additional hot water generation, and compliment the air source heating system. There is Heatmiser Neohub zoned underfloor heating throughout the property with all water pipes fully insulated; a shower water heat recovery system with 67% efficiency reduces energy needed to heat shower water and cleargreen insulated baths retain heat for 30mins longer than a normal bath. Air heat recovery system (MVHR) extracts stale air and supplies clean filtered air that is warmed using the recovered heat from the extracted air. MVHR has been proven to reduce the risk of virus transmission, pollen allergies, and reduces the risk of a variety of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, like asthma and strokes as well as preventing the build-up of condensation therefore, reducing the likelihood of mould growth in the home. Willows also comes with a 10-year BUILD ZONE structural build warranty.
