Innova Park is an 11 hectare site and this scheme was a proposal for plots 4 and 5 which occupy the southern part of the business park. These two sites are 4 hectares and had an outline consent for change of use to residential, enabling Innova Park to become a mixed use neighbourhood and new urban quarter.
The RMA masterplan included five exemplar ‘Excellent’ rated Ecohomes houses with photovoltaic panels, solar water heating panels, a geothermal heatpump, underfloor heating system, micro wind turbines, low energy light fittings and carbon free emissions.
The homes at Innova Park incorporate a range of contemporary styles which respond to the needs of modern living. The apartments and houses have a variety of exterior treatments: rendered and brick façades with tiled and timber features, glazing and steel balconies. The ample amounts of open space together with the modern blocks create a sharp, continental style of neighbourhood.
