Elm Avenue Refurbishment
Elm Avenue – East Preston, West Sussex
A traditional 1930’s four bedroom home in this West Sussex village was renovated to exacting energy efficiency standards. Extensive remodelling looked to accommodate opening out the house to a newly planted BBC Gardeners World featured garden design.
A Mechanical ventilation and Heat Recovery unit was installed meaning air tightness considerations were detailed in the design. Alongside grey water recycling from a new reed-bed filtration system, Solar PV arrays and externally insulated render were integrated into the renovation. All of which make this house a example of how traditional dwellings can meet exacting carbon efficiency standards whilst retaining original features and comfort.
