Tender issue (pre-construction)
This stunning custom build family home has been designed by John Pardey Architects. The house will replace an existing farmhouse and will adopt a former farm building creating a new pool house, offering changing rooms and breakout space. The house will be built using Modern Methods of construction and will adopt a fabric first strategy.
NuPlanet have been appointed to provide building compliance services, low energy building modelling and a detailed building services design.
The client’s brief was to design a family house that will be efficient, user-friendly, whilst also reducing the impact on the planet.
NuPlanet carried out low energy modelling to help enhance the thermal comfort and energy efficiency and reduce the risk of overheating.
The proposed new house will include a full mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR) system, and renewable systems including; ground source heat pump, a photovoltaic array, and a battery storage system. A fresh-water borehole & filtration system was included in the design to provide a fresh water supply to the new house. A full home automation system will provide smart controls for lighting, shades, HVAC systems, etc.
