This new build private house was built in the grounds of the clients existing 19th Century Home in Whirlow Sheffield. The home is carbon neutral has three levels and is partially built into the hillside. The u-values of the thermal elements greatly exceed building regulations, and this allows the use of renewable and low energy technologies.
Our brief was to explore the use of technologies available that could be deployed in the design. Ventilation is via heat recovery systems (MVHR) throughout, and heating is by underfloor heating using NIBE ground source heat pumps. The heat pumps derive energy from two 40 metre groundwater boreholes, which also provides drinking water.
The low energy strategy is complimented by photovoltaic panels which use battery storage and inverters to retain generated electricity for deployment during periods of low generation.
