AECB Gloucester Group – Grove End Site visit

March 21 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Grove End is a single storey property completed in 2019 on a design and build basis by Greenheart. The house structure is timber frame, built on site with 300mm I-beams. The roof is a combination of I-Beams, Glulam and Kerto timber with steel beams used only over the largest spans, and has a living roof.  The walls are insulated with WARMCEL Thermal insulation with 18mm sarking wood fibre board externally and airtight 12mm OSB internally. Airtightness was achieved with the use of SIGA membranes and tapes, and the house reaches  PassivHaus standards although is not certified. The MVHR system was designed by the Green Building Store using a Zehnder unit and Lindab rigid ducting. Windows are triple glazed. Energy for the building is supplied by a combination of Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP), solar thermal evacuated tubes and Photovoltaic (PV) panels connected to a Tesla Battery. Combined with an occasional use room sealed, double-sided wood burning stove the house is self sufficient in energy over the year. Directions: Satnav takes you to junction of Brantwood Road and Coppice Hill. From top of Coppice Hill take very sharp left after only 4 houses, down little lane (no name) – at the bottom the lane goes onto tarmac track past the last house and down to Grove End. Parking for about 6 cars and turning space.greenheart grove
