Active Homes at Marleigh
Making Active Homes work in practice.
To meet a planning condition that the Marleigh development had to be an exemplar of sustainability, a Marshall and Hill joint venture is working with architects Pollard Thomas Edwards and the Active Building Centre to deliver Active Homes, houses that generate and store renewable electricity to meet their own needs and intelligently redistribute the surplus to other buildings and back into the grid, within the real-world margins required by a commercial development.
