Our design team included David Noble of White Design and Tim Mander of Integral Structural Design and Michael Clark of Michael Clark Management. Together we gathered a vast knowledge of eco friendly construction from the planning stage right through to completion of the project. In particular:
The Grange Business Park buildings are thought to have the largest straw buildings in Europe, the only ones to use large bales. The walls better current building regulations for U/values by a factor of 8.
Using Geo- Thermal ground loops, water to water & air to air heat pumps & night time air purging natural ventilation.
Roof water is collected and used to flush toilets.
Low energy lighting
Making the most of natural light, low energy bulbs and tubes, l.e.d lighting.
Re-using concrete by crushing disused concrete, reclaiming wooden beams and railway sleepers for roofs and landscaping materials.
