Dalmuir Phase 3 was built to Silver Standard 1 & 2, which helps reduce tenants energy usage. A “fabric first” approach to energy
efficiency and low carbon emissions was adopted, incorporating a high level of insulation and large double glazed windows to
provide an increased level of daylight and solar gain. This was further enhanced with the installation of ‘A’ rated gas combiboilers
and renewable energy in the form of Photovoltaic Panels and smart meters. There are also centralised and decentralised
mechanical extract ventilation systems.


A sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) comprising underground storage tanks limits the flow of surface water prior to
connection to the combined sewer.
