Contractor’s Kithurst Builders, with a proven track record in air tight buildings, are working in conjunction with ecotecture who are the project managers on this super energy efficient barn conversion. Building to an air tightness of 1m3/m2/hr @ 50 pascals pressure with proposed Mechancial Ventilation and Heat Recovery and air source heat pump the building will have very low energy bills in the future. Although windows are openable this system provides constant fresh air ensuring indoor air quality is always good, reducing risk of condensation, mould growth and pollutants.

Work has now started on the internal ballon timber frame which will act as the structural skeleton. Part 3 architect Jenny in the office spends a day a week on site working along side the Kithurst gang, as well as administrating the contract with Jo.
