MOD NetCAP – Nett Zero
Delap & Waller have been appointed as M&E Engineers to assist Reds10 in the provision of 40 carbon efficient accommodation blocks, providing more than 1,700 bed spaces, to be delivered as part of £45m Net Carbon Accommodation Programme (NetCAP) across the UK Defence Training Estate.
The programme prototype at Westdown Camp has an A-rated Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) just 12 points from achieving net zero, thanks to air source heat pumps and rooftop solar panels Using lessons learned from Westdown Camp, the second site in the programme (Nesscliff Training Area) improved on this with an EPC rating of -5, meaning its three buildings generate power for the site, reducing electricity costs. SMART building technology was installed in each of the NetCAP buildings, providing detailed information on their energy usage, feeding directly into subsequent building design and specifications. All 40 accommodation blocks are constructed using offsite construction techniques, building units in Reds10 factory before transporting to site.
