welcome to c-zero
Czero is a pioneering developer of sustainable housing.
At a time when the average housebuilder is looking to do the minimum to comply with regulation over sustainability and energy efficiency, C-Zero is demonstrating that more sustainable houses can be built cost-effectively, and their owners appreciate the lower running costs that careful energy-conscious design provides.
Our first development at Long Meadow, Diss was highly innovative both in terms of the way it was built and the way it as sold. 29 homes were built from carbon negative Hemcrete, with an innovative form of tenure enabling local people to buy their own homes at prices they can afford.
With Harvest House, Wistanswick, Czero has built a house with an 'A' rated Energy Performance Certificate, packing many energy and resource saving features into house without compromising its design or cost.
Lessons from these projects have pointed Czero in the direction of being a 'Custom Build Enabler', bringing forward developments enabling individuals to build their own low and zero carbon homes. The first development will be announced shortly so watch this space!
Czero is currently working on two development projects involving turning historic buildings into student accommodation, through sister company Czero Heritage. The former Welsh Baptist Chapel in Manchester will provide around 100 rooms, whilst the Christopher Wray Lighting Factory in Birmingham will provide around 200.
Czero was shortlisted for "Sustainable Housing Developer of the Year" in the 2011 Housing Awards.
