Our residential projects vary from small house extensions to a recently completed new build 560 m2 contemporary house with indoor swimming pool. We have also completed many barn conversions where the brief has varied from the clients requiring a sympathetic, traditional renovation to a minimalist contemporary conversion within the original barn shell.
We find that a lot of our clients are now looking to construction methods to provide them with a “low energy” home and we are happy to advise any potential clients on methods to achieve this. We have experience with insulated raft foundation systems which is a “passivhaus” certified foundation system that offers speed and cost advantages and also ICF (Insulating Concrete Form) walls. Both provide excellent thermal performance along with greater sustainability and efficiency.
Many of our clients are also looking to natural energy methods for their home heating and this can be achieved through the installation of ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps. Both these systems can be combined with other systems such as Solar Photovoltaic (Solar PV) and Solar Thermal panels to provide even greater benefits.
So whether you’re looking for a new build “passivhaus” system or simply a “living green roof” on your extension we are happy to advise and provide a quotation.
