Eco Build To Rent scheme promotes air source heat pumps

A Build To Rent scheme is now ready for move-in by tenants, following the completed conversion of an ambulance station into flats.

There are 133 studios in the scheme in central Exeter, along with a gym, laundry facilities, co-working space, a shared co-living kitchen, cinema room, TV lounge, external courtyard and a games area. 

Additionally, the development includes a large amount of indoor and outdoor bicycle storage, promoting sustainable transport across the city. 


The development incorporates what it calls “cutting edge technology and engineering to target reduced emissions” with air source heat pumps for the central heating and hot water system substantially reducing the carbon footprint of the site. 


Richard Harris of residential development consultancy Watkin Jones, says: “We are thrilled to practically complete Gladstone Road and hand this scheme over to our client, Ropemaker Properties Limited. Residents can move in now, and we are proud to deliver high quality homes that encourage an inclusive community environment. This is a great development that brings sustainable and affordable homes to Exeter.”
