Campbell Park, Milton Keynes

Campbell Park is an exemplary, design-led, sustainable, residential development in Milton Keynes.

Campbell Park

George Wimpey North Thames is building 280 apartments and townhouses the first phase as of this development. One third of the homes will be for affordable rental and shared ownership with a percentage available through the Government's First Time Buyer Initiative and HomeBuy home ownership drive.

Every home is being built to the EcoHomes rating of Excellent. All homes will also have a National Homes Energy Rating (NHER) of 10, which was the maximum NHER score at the time of planning. Campbell Park homes are highly insulated to meet the best practice standards recommended by the Government's Energy Saving Trust.

We have committed to reducing carbon dioxide emissions from the development by 10% through renewable energy use. The townhouses will have water systems heating powered by solar thermal panels, as will the top two floors of each apartment block. The apartment blocks will also have solar photovoltaic systems to generate renewable electricity for lighting communal areas. Surplus energy will be exported to the National Grid.

The apartment buildings will have living green roofs providing benefits that include improved insulation and cooling, reduced storm water run off and provision of wildlife habitats. We are also providing a communal rainwater collection distribution and scheme to reduce the need for water in the development's gardens and other outdoor spaces.

The apartments will have full height windows to allow the maximum amount daylight into of rooms. Balconies will feature sliding sunscreens to protect residents against high intensity sun.

We are using materials with a low environmental impact, specifying A-rated constructions from the BRE Green Guide rating system wherever possible. The principal elements including the roof, internal and external walls and windows are all A-rated.
