We are in the early stages of a total strip-out and refurbishment of an 1800s terraced house on a prestigious street in Central London close to Tottenham Court road, Holborn, Russell Square and Brunswick Gardens. The clients are seeking to future-proof their home by going the extra mile and building to the Passivhaus EnerPHit standard. In addition to their refurb we will be constructing a new art gallery to the rear of the building. This will be a fully glazed construction with a green roof and a basement floor below.
Bow Tie Construction were selected for the project due to our experience delivering Passivhaus design on a Bloomsbury home of the same form that received coverage in the Evening Standard. Our track record of delivering complex and challenging deep retrofits while being sensitive to budget requirements made us the most suitable contractor for the job. The renders and drawings shown are courtesy of BÜF Architects. Concept MVHR design was produced in-house by Bow Tie Construction.
“We’re expecting a dramatic reduction in costs. We now know how much energy we’ve used (in March) and we rarely have the heating on compared to this time last year in our old house.”
“Prewett Bizley and Bow Tie Construction worked very well in partnership which made our lives very easy.”
“Rafael’s product knowledge and technical skills helped us solve many tricky problems and ultimately produce our dream home. Thanks Rafael!”
“Rafael demonstrated a great knowledge in respect of building work and was able to draw plans and give advice regarding interior design.”
“Your guys did a very good job on the [window] installation, nice and precise and the assemblies fitted perfectly….Very good silicon application too, with a nice 5mm joint. So please do thank them on behalf of Cristina and myself. We are very pleased.”
