    The Wyldewoods, Chester

    The Wyldewoods is a new self-contained village of medium rise residential accommodation located on the outskirts of Chester City Centre.

    Project Summary

    The local council has declared a climate emergency and as part of Retirement Villages own long term objectives, have identified their desire to implement sustainable pathways to realise a net zero carbon development.

    This is with the added aim of producing a high quality and sustainable environment that enhances the wellbeing of residents and quality of life.  As part of this sustainable approach the project team are working towards certification under the Fitwel assessment scheme.

    This is a multi-residential retirement village project comprising 147 residential units distributed across six multi-storey residential blocks.

    There is a mix of 1-bed and 2-bed properties along with a large club house community area including restaurant, bar, lounge, gym, administration, and medical facilities.

    The scheme includes high levels of fabric performance, and an all-electric energy strategy has been adopted following a detailed analysis of suitable technologies in full consideration of the impending changes with the Part L Regulations and Future Homes Standard.

    An exhaust air heat pump with MVHR provides heating and hot water services to the residential apartments. Communal areas have highly efficient variable refrigerant flow comfort heating and cooling systems. Other engineering systems include high efficacy LED lighting, sprinklers, converged data network, CCTV, various alarm and call systems.
