Case Study

This gallery follows the construction of a new environmentally friendly detached house for a private client. The new dwelling occupies the site of a small sub-standard cottage and ancillary outbuildings.

Clad in stone with a slate roof, the house is constructed form highly insulated prefabricated timber panels which provide high levels of thermal performance as well as enabling excellent air tightness in the final structure. Other sustainable features to be incorporated in the design include an air source heat pump, mechanical ventilation and heat recovery, rain water harvesting, a sedum roof to the kitchen and a solar thermal hot water store.
