Product description


Great Bow Yard is an unusual development of 12 homes in Langport, Somerset. The developers, Ecos Homes Limited, set out to build to the highest environmental standards whilst still making a profit. The result is a successful and award-winning housing scheme which sets a new standard in private development. This frank and comprehensive account of the building of Great Bow Yard is intended to share the lessons with builders, developers, local authorities, planners and those involved at any stage in the building process. If the building industry is to play its part in reducing carbon emissions it is vital that new housing is built to exceed the TIMID environmental standards that government has imposed on it. Great Bow Yard has proved that environmentally sustainable development is not only theoretically possible but also practically achievable.
