Project Description

We are on site with a 6 bedroom new-build Passivhaus. Partly built into a hill, the house has an upside-down design with a large open plan kitchen, living and dining room on the upper floor and all bedrooms on the lower floor. The site has incredible views over the Surrey hills. We were awarded the job due to our considerable experience building Passivhaus and our attention to detail.

We have since contributed to re-designing the M&E systems to reduce costs and optimise installation. On this project we pioneered the use of a 3D model of the steel structure which we created in-house and then shared with the architect, engineer and M&E designer. A setting out engineer used this model to mark the locations of anchors for the steel structure which enable swift efficient installation.

  • “We had a lot of people stay over Christmas, some quite elderly, who were concerned about being in a big old house in Winter and being cold and we received a lot of complements on the comfort and easy warmth. There is no higher accolade than complements on your house from your mother-in-law!”
