Local Group in West Cornwall to meet up on 6th March at The Cornwall Sustainable Building Trust

March 6, 2012 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

After speaking to a few AECB members in West Cornwall, Dom Goetz has seen that there is an appetite for a local group meeting with a catchment area of Land’s End to Newquay/Bodmin/St Austell.  Those living further afield are still welcome.

The first meeting is to be at 5 pm on 6th March 2012 at the CSBT offices just outside St Austell:
Cornwall Sustainable Building Trust, Tehidy Cottages, Burngullow Lane, High Street, St Austell PL26 7TQ   http://www.csbt.org.uk/

If you would like to be included, please email domgoetz71@hotmail.com or debbie@aecb.net

A great start to the group events with 16 members present and 3 apologies.  Among those present there was a wide variety of expertise and experience which bodes well for interesting meetings in the future.
Potential future topics could include the following projects:    Converted barns near Penzance in AONB (Adam Rowse)  Robin van der Bij’s Ecohouse build at Mylor; and Jubilee Wharf, Penryn (Nigel Murray)  Coverack – design just missed PHPP by 1kw (Pete Dangerfield).    Infill mid-terrace house designed as close to PassivHaus as possible (Joan Kinnane).   Hanse Haus in Ponsanooth (Paul Bright) and Heartlands – listed buildings with BREEAM (Phil Crossley) which is scheduled to be the group’s next event, on 12th April.
