Chimney Pot Park

Chimney Pot Park

Application: Private & Public Housing

As part of the government’s housing-market renewal scheme, Salford has been recognised as an area in great need of revival. After years of underinvestment, neglect and crime, the area had become a place of rejection rather than choice. Working in conjunction with local partners, award-winning property developers, Urban Splash have embarked on a major regeneration project to transform 349 Victorian-style terraced houses.

This exciting new development named ‘Chimney Pot Park’ has given this neglected suburb of Greater Manchester a much needed boost of city chic. Dubbed the ‘upside down houses’ for their unusual design layout, the properties feature downstairs sleeping arrangements and an upstairs living space with a unique mezzanine kitchen. In line with the project’s sustainability theme, each property features five of Jaga’s LowH20 Strada radiators which will provide residents with environmentally-friendly, yet affordable heat.

The powerful, low mass, low water technology inside each radiator means a reaction speed that is three times faster than the performance of an ordinary radiator to offer rapid, regulated heating. On average the system will deliver a 10% energy saving which translates into long-term savings on annual heating bills.
