Environmental benefits

Creating an environmentally sustainable home with minimal carbon footprint is the ethos behind the Cygnus home.

Icon Cloud Cream

At every point in the process, from the initial design, to the final installation, we have introduced Passivhaus methods to increase energy efficiency, minimise the impact on the environment and reduce waste.

From investing in the latest technology and best products available, to sourcing sustainable and recycled materials, the Cygnus home is the home of the future.

Materials are sustainably sourced using the BRE Green Specification Guide A+ as the benchmark.

Quick installation

On-site build time is reduced by 50% compared to standard housing, as 90% of the home is manufactured off-site, helping to reduce environmental impact.

Cheaper to run

Innovative energy conservation reduces living costs to £250 per year. Solar thermal heating is standard to every Cygnus home.

Low carbon rating

The Cygnus home is credited with a low carbon rating, thanks to high levels of insulation and smart and effective controls to reduce energy and resource consumption.

Improved performance

It’s over 100% better than current building regulation standards for thermal performance. Airtightness throughout the home ensures little energy is wasted.
