South East Reports / Avante Homes: Fabric performance and occupancy feedback

The aim of the Avante BPE study was to learn lessons in hindsight in order to improve future housing design, development and management within Crest Nicholson leading to improved customer products and services.
Overall, there have been a number of positive findings in relation to the initial occupancy study of the Avante housing development such as a slightly better fabric performance than predicted by SAP and good occupant satisfaction with overall comfort conditions. There have also been a number of challenges such as a lack of understanding of environmental construction and user consequences in relation to key innovative features; giving rise to opportunities for improving Crest Nicholson’s housing product.
