Mi-Space – Primrose Park

This flagship development of 72 innovative and affordable homes, which are so eco-friendly they require virtually no heating, has helped reinvigorate a deprived area.

Mi-space, part of the Midas Group, delivered Primrose Park, Plymouth, for customer, Plymouth Community Homes (PCH) in partnership with Plymouth City Council (PCC). The development added much needed homes to the city’s housing register, with 23 homes to buy through shared ownership and 49 for affordable rent.

The £10.4 million development is currently the largest Passivhaus development in the UK, alleviating the issue of fuel poverty for its occupants through an innovative, modern standard of construction; providing superior energy performance through the use of high-insulation materials, and resident comfort through specialised ventilation systems. Mi-space exceeded contractual requirements of Passivhaus principles to deliver a fully Passivhaus-certified scheme.

Primrose Park combines modern architecture and community values, reflecting a traditional village layout with a central square. Mi-space delivered the project on time and to budget, achieved a Gold Secured by Design (SBD) award and received a CCS Performance Beyond Compliance Certificate.
