State-of-the-art new homes on the up

Oakdale new build news

Work is well underway to build six brand-new, energy-efficient Borough of Poole homes at Dale Valley Road and Dale Close in Oakdale.

The homes will feature cutting-edge technology, including rooftop solar panels and revolutionary heating systems to help residents reduce their energy bills.

At Dale Valley Road, two three-bedroom houses are being built on a former garage site, while at Dale Close four one-bedroom flats are being developed on an underused parking area.

The houses will benefit from private gardens and driveways, and the flats will have a communal garden with decking, plus allocated parking.

Following a successful pilot at PHP’s Old Farm Road development, completed last year, the new Oakdale houses are set to feature photovoltaic (solar) technology and a Minus7 heating system, where heat from the roof is processed by exchangers and stored in hot and cold storage tanks. The system also houses a heat pump which upgrades the available heat in the cold store before transferring it to the hot store. 

Developed and installed by Minus7, both houses will benefit from a mini-district heating system of ground floor underfloor heating and fan-assisted radiators, on the first floor. The combination of these technologies ensures the homes meet Code Level 4 of the government’s national standard for sustainable design and construction. 

The homes have a lifespan of over 35 years and we expect the energy-efficiency measures to deliver significant fuel savings for residents. Currently eight weeks into the build, both projects are on schedule to be completed by the end of this year.
