The Airtopia Health Check report conducted at The Tramyard correlates with the standard guidelines from the World Health Organisation, a guide used to create the ideal state of air purity. Tests which were carried out include humidity and temperature to determine thermal comfort, a volatile organic compounds (VOC) test to trace airborne chemicals, an assessment of any actively growing mould, a measurement of CO2 levels to indicate the developments ventilation efficiency, and an additional test to ensure airborne concentrations fall within recommended guidelines.

The Tramyard scored an overall rating of A (143 out of 150), achieving ratings within the highest category in each individual test. Through access to these results, Joseph Homes is handing buyers the power to make informed decisions around their health and homes, the two of which are becoming increasingly symbiotic especially given recent circumstances, reflecting its unfaltering commitment to accelerating change in the built environment.

Buyer awareness around indoor air quality has been a new focus amongst consumers, with new forecasts indicating that the air purifier product market size is estimated to reach $18.21bn by 2027, with an expected growth of 10.8% between 2020 to 2027, according to Million Insights. Mintel Report ‘Aircare’ also indicated a soar in popularity of many ‘air care’ products during the UK lockdown, however, many of these products actually decrease indoor air quality levels, with only 29% of those surveyed actually prioritising how healthy a formula is before purchasing, suggesting that there is more to be done to educate on the importance of air quality.

The apartments and Garden Villas at The Tramyard are the product of Joseph Homes’ forward-thinking approach to housebuilding, using the company’s ‘Live Well’ principles, putting health at the heart of their developments. In line with these principles, The Tramyard is built through sustainable methods and environmentally-friendly materials. The homes reflect the character of the local area and tap into latest advances in design and technology to create comfortable, contemporary abodes.

Each of the homes at The Tramyard has private outdoor space and access to communal gardens. The large floor-to-ceiling windows ensure the homes are flooded with natural light. The interiors are decorated with non-toxic paint, low VOC materials, pollen filters to alleviate hayfever and MVHR (mechanical ventilation and heat recovery), which ensure clean, filtered air is replenished throughout the homes, all of which increase the indoor air quality at the development, reducing the impact of harmful chemicals found in some other homes.

Sean Ruane, Sales Director at Joseph Homes, comments, “In the current climate, the importance of understanding and achieving higher levels of indoor air quality has been elevated on the list of priorities for many buyers. However, the concept is still new to many, with public health awareness on indoor air pollution lagging behind that on outdoor air pollution. It is important for us at Joseph Homes to continue to inform our customers on this topic, and highlight harmful chemicals that are commonly present in indoor air, especially as many of us spend around 90% of our days indoors.

“The homes at The Tramyard go above and beyond many other developments in elevating the health of buyers by improving indoor air quality, and they have seen a great deal of popularity so far with a significant number sold already. Our recent win in the Evening Standard New Homes Awards Best Apartment category further cements The Tramyard’s reputation as a development with excellent quality, great environmental design and good value.”
