Grange Farm, Weston-Super-Mare
Dairy farmers Chris and Simon Redding have imaginatively realised an ‘eco-office’ development utilising redundant farm-buildings. By reusing existing structures, both timber and steel, naturally ventilated and day lit offices are now completed.
The traditional ‘barn’ outbuildings and cow sheds, have been transformed into low energy office accommodation. Using geothermal heat pumps, automated natural ventilation systems and ‘super’ levels of insulation using ModCell® cladding, the scheme aims to be virtually carbon-neutral.
The steel framed former cow sheds are clad in load bearing, lime rendered ModCell® panels.
