New Dwelling - Finchampstead

A local developer purchased a bungalow on a large plot with the intention of demolishing the bungalow and replacing with two new properties. The project was required by local planning policy to meet Code for Sustainable Homes level 3 standards.

We were able to provide the developer with a site strategy to maximise the energy and sustainability credits available. The final project incorporated traditional gas boilers and an array of photovoltaic solar panels on each property together with a high fabric efficiency with the use of a timberframe construction.

Additionally our drainage engineer and ecologist were also able to include valuable input helping achieve the most amount available of credits surface water run-off and ecology.

Upon completion of the building works our onsite testing engineers visited site to certify the air permeability rating for the building control officer’s final inspection and completion certificate.
