Get Ready for Liverpool’s First Eco-Development: ELEMENT – The Quarter

    Nexus Residential Unveils Revolutionary Eco-Development in Liverpool

    Liverpool is a city filled to the brim with innovation. With nanotechnologies and biotechnologies in the Knowledge Quarter and massive regeneration projects dotted throughout the metropolis, it isn’t easy to impress and create something truly original. But with ELEMENT – The Quarter, the latest property to join our extensive Liverpool portfolio, developer Nexus Residential have done just that – created a revolutionary residential development which will be a first for the city.

    ELEMENT – The Quarter, Liverpool, is located in the heart of the city centre, in the talent-filled Knowledge Quarter. Home to both Liverpool John Moores University and the University of Liverpool, the area features some of the most high-tech and innovative companies in the entire country, helping Liverpool become the second-fastest-growing digital cluster in the UK. But it’s not only its fantastic surroundings that make ELEMENT- The Quarter so exciting. It is the first eco-development of its kind in the city.

    Revolutionary Smart Technology

    The avant-garde development features pioneering low-carbon smart technologies implemented throughout the building, promoting unrivalled sustainability and low running costs.

    It has been proposed that an exciting Central business management server (BMS) will be installed for the site. Traditionally used exclusively for high-quality hotels, the system is designed to control energy consumption in the building.

    Putting the ‘smart’ in smart technology, the system will monitor if communal or residential rooms are vacant for a long time. If this is the case, the BMS will recognize this and regulate the heating for the area. In practical terms, this means a vacant room sitting at 25 degrees will be reduced to a constant 18 degrees, considerably saving energy consumption. Perhaps even cooler (pun intended), the BMS will turn off the heating if it detects opened windows, further preventing energy waste.

    A Rainwater Recycling System

    This system is just the tip of the iceberg for ELEMENT – The Quarter, with multiple fantastic technologies set to revolutionize property development. A rainwater recycling system will harvest rainwater for use in toilets, irrigation, and laundry purposes. Solar panels on the roof will also help use the environment to the building’s advantage, with sunlight used to provide renewable energy, helping save a tonne of money in the process.

    Another technology used to distribute heat correctly is the impressive MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery). The system redistributes heat from hotter parts of the building to reduce the need for heating in other parts of the property. It also removes stale air and pumps fresh air throughout the property. By extracting warm air from non-habitable areas of the development, the system puts the air through a heat exchanger, which removes the heat and then redistributes it to bedrooms, living areas, and communal zones. The bottom line is, fresh air will be pumped throughout the property, which will be ideal for residents.

    Incredible Water and Heat Management Systems

    While the technologies already mentioned are awe-inspiring, there are still even more systems to truly create an eco-friendly haven in the heart of the city. A Shower Save System is placed in each apartment, which will recycle heat generated from hot shower wastewater. The system will transfer the heat back into clean water. This will reduce the amount of heat that is needed to produce fresh hot water.

    Other systems include an Air Source Heat Pump system, designed to absorb heat from the air, and energy-efficient LED lighting, which will detect movement in communal areas to prevent wasted electricity.

    Overall, it is absolutely breathtaking how innovative and futuristic ELEMENT – The Quarter will be. It represents the next step in property development, with the world crying out for sustainable properties.

    State-of-the-Art Facilities in a Prime Location

    ELEMENT – The Quarter will prove to be the latest in a long line of investment found in the Knowledge Quarter. As mentioned, the area is an unreal hub of excellence and is home to some of the country’s most expensive regeneration schemes. The zone has seen a total of £2 billion worth of investment, with mega projects like Paddington Village and Liverpool Science Park making headlines.

    There are over 70,000 students found in the city, and with the property just 350m away from the largest and busiest hospital in Merseyside and Cheshire, the Royal Liverpool University hospital, ELEMENT – The Quarter is perfect for postgraduates and professionals.

    The development also features some of the most coveted and desired facilities in property today. With facilities like a gymnasium, cinema room, and games room, keeping fit and having fun will not be a problem for residents. Topping that off with a stunning roof terrace overlooking Liverpool’s iconic skyline, landscaped gardens, and a dedicated work from home area, ELEMENT – The Quarter is a dream property in 2020.
