Jerry Harrall discussing Tarmac Waterford Project – homes of the future
Jerry said “Tarmac’s Waterford project can be differentiated from other more speculative housing projects by the fact it delivers an almost fossil fuel free existence for households.” This forward thinking from Dr Jerry Harrall brings the future, to today’s properties at Tarmac.
This video is a great insight into Jerry’s thinking about the project. It is a clear and concise conversation from the architect, and brings his thought son Tarmac’s Waterford Project to the forefront of our minds.
In his drive to design a remarkable, experimental and sustainable community of earth-bunded housing, award-winning architect Jerry Harrall required environmentally considerate materials.
Through collaborative working Tarmac and Jerry designed a bespoke concrete foundation solution which utilised slag aggregate – offering a carbon reduction of 64.4%. Several years and countless awards later, Unity Gardens remains a perfect example of sustainable housing and close collaboration.
