First Wessex

First Wessex provide around 500 new homes each year in the South East. They are a key partner in delivering the work of the Hub and collaborate on several cutting edge housing sector research projects. The move towards zero carbon housing by 2016 makes the partnership all the more valuable so that both sides can learn about large scale preparation, development and delivery of housing in line with new standards.

Joint projects with the Hub (and other partners) include: the Rowner research project in Gosport; ‘Design versus As built’ performance review; "Overheating in new housing" publication; and embarking on the design of a new development that will incorporate the learning from the Hub’s work and act as a live test bed in the run up to 2016.
