  • The Green Building at Macintosh Village sets new standards in ecological home design and is one of the most environmentally advanced residential buildings in the country. Designed by internationally renowned architects Terry Farrell & Partners, features include: A roof-mounted wind turbine that will generate electrical power for communal areas Solar energy for hot water generation will be harnessed using roof-mounted panels The building is designed to achieve a 60% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to that of an average apartment building Highly efficient communal gas boilers serve the underfloor heating system Facilities throughout the building will separate waste to maximise recycling Energy bills will be significantly reduced by a SAP rating of at least 100 and with the majority of appliances being A-rated There are considerable savings in water consumption, around 40% compared with the average home On the ground floor of the building there will be a doctors surgery and a nursery school Contained within a cylindrical drum, the central atrium allows plenty of natural light and ventilation into the apartments and a state of the art computerised system will optimise the control of active elements such as the atrium windows. In summary, The Green Building is a whole new concept in city living, uniquely eco-friendly and breathing new life into the heart of Manchester.
