Gloucestershire, Herefordshire & Worcestershire Group Revisit a Passivhaus in Ledbury

December 11, 2012 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Julia Bennett, leader of the Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire Group, has organised for the members to revisit a completed passivhaus to find out how the owner, Ruth Busbridge, is enjoying living in it.  The Group originally visited the house in February during construction (https://www.aecb.net/events/2012/01/gloucester-worcestershire-herefordshire-local-group-visit-house-under-construction-8th-february-2012/)

Ruth, herself a Passivhaus Designer and C.A.T sustainable architecture graduate, chose AECB members for  the design and construction of ‘Greystones’, a 3-bedroom house.  Features of the building include the use of natural materials wherever possible including small section timber ‘I’ columns and joists with cellulose infill insulation, main roof reconstituted slate tiling and entrance/porch roof planted with a variety of sedums i.e. a living roof.

The contractor, Mike Whitfield Construction of Hereford, specialises in energy efficient and ecologically sound construction.  See https://www.aecb.net/profile/mikewhitfield/?page=About  Green Building Store supplied a wide range of products used in the project, including:   Alphawin windows, PAUL Novus 300 MVHR system, ES4 siphon flush WC and Aqualogic showerheads
