New eco-homes project to “set the green standard” for Sheffield

A regeneration partnership is “setting the green standard” for Sheffield, with a £5.5m project to construct 35 new eco-friendly homes.

Sheffield Housing Company (SHC) is working with energy and regeneration specialist EQUANS to create the 19 three and four bedroom houses and 16 two bedroom apartments at Norfolk Park. The homes will be available for sale on the open market.

EQUANS is the new brand for global energy company ENGIE’s regeneration and services-led activities.

The properties will feature electric vehicle charging points and solar photovoltaic (PV) panels to help residents live a modern and green lifestyle, whilst also contributing to Sheffield City Council’s target to be a zero carbon city by 2030.

Norfolk Park has a rich history and has benefitted from significant investment in recent years, with its surrounding parklands and proximity to the city centre making it an attractive place to live.

Nathan Brough, regional director at EQUANS, said: “It’s great to be working alongside SHC once more and our proven partnership is making a big difference in transforming housing across Sheffield.

“The environmentally-friendly features of this scheme will really set the standard for future housing across the city. Together, we’re proud to be leading the way and creating much-needed new homes.”

Steve Birch, project director with SHC, said: “This is an exciting project and we are pleased to be developing properties which have a number of green credentials that benefit the buyer, the city and the wider environment.

“The provision of affordable, modern, quality homes is a priority, but we also take our environmental responsibility seriously and are keen to support the continued growth of Sheffield, which is known as the greenest city in the UK.”

Work is due to start on site this month with the properties released for sale in 2022.
