The site is heavily wooded and we carefully designed the scheme to integrate existing mature trees into the new landscape.

The project meets the BREEAM Very Good criteria under the 2008 scheme.

The proposals incorporate very high levels of environmental sustainability: highly insulated and airtight timber frame, solar thermal generation, heat recovery, sustainable specifications and a car-free development.
