Oyster Reach is a development of 5 two bed luxury sea facing apartments, all surpassing Code Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes and achieving Passivhaus standards.

The new building, named Oyster Reach is situated along the top of Tankerton slopes, on Herne Bay Road. The property has stunning sea views of the Thames Estuary, Sheppey and the Essex coast line.

The external walls are constructed with both leaves consisting of 100mm Aircrete blockwork, a 150mm fully insulated cavity, Sto render to the external and wet plaster internally.

The apartments have all achieved double A ratings SAP calcs, with EPC's of 94 and 95; considered to be a 1st in the UK for a commercial development with 'u' values c.015 and outstanding air test results below 1. This outstanding result was partly achieved with the use of hybrid PV-T (photovoltaic thermal) panels that produce much of the domestic hot water for the flats and electricity that is used for both space heating (through electric underfloor heating mats), the MVHR (Mechanical Heat Recovery Ventilation) and other specified electrical goods.

The project was delivered for Wye Mange Ltd as a design and build project by Masonry Frame Systems Ltd. The energy system was designed and supplied by Carbon Free Group members.
