The Greenheart team keeps growing! We are delighted to introduce our new in-house architect Josh Wood as we continue to increase the capacity of our full Design & Build service.
Josh is a qualified and registered Architect with over eleven years combined work and education experience. He started his path into architecture with a mission to design and procure truly sustainable buildings. This led him to UWE and the first course in the UK to combine environmental engineering with architecture with a focus on sustainable, passive design. Winning awards in this area, Josh has gone on to become part of sustainability teams at both large and small architectural practices in Bristol. With a fondness for craftsmanship, Josh has spent the last three years working for an up-and-coming practice designing contemporary oak framed houses. During this time he has lead many domestic projects smoothly from start to finish specialising in offering clients a comprehensive turnkey service.
Josh has designed and built his own Tiny Home which he has lived in for three years and will soon be featured on TV. He enjoys using his hands and hiking absurdly long distances in remote parts of the world!
Kicking off in Colerne...
It's all kicking off in Colerne! Groundworks have begun on a three-bedroom, timber-clad home in rural Wiltshire, that will be built to Passive House standard.
This is a Greenheart In-House Design & Build project, implementing the Passive House Planning Package. The house will be timber-framed and WARMCEL insulated and - we hope! - complete by next summer.
Site Visit to Passivhaus project
Join us a for talk and tour of our latest new build passivhaus project in Nailsea - a three-bedroomed house on an urban infill site.
We have joined forces with The Green Register for this special event on February 22nd. Richard Hatfield will start by talking about our involvement in the project followed by Piers Sadler talking specifically about the attention to detail required for passivhaus certification.
Greenheart director Malcolm McMahon will then give an overview of the project, a tour around the house and site followed by a Q&A session.
Place are very limited so visit The Green Register website for more information and to book.
We have set to work on the refurbishment and extension of a tired 1950's two-storey house in Backwell, near Bristol, designed in collaboration with s2 design.
A large two-storey, open plan Timber frame extension will have lots of glass to the rear of the building to make the most of the views over the Severn estuary, with WARMCEL insulation and high spec triple glazed windows keeping it snug.
The existing house will be fully refurbished with new windows, improved levels of insulation and new interior layout.
Timber Frame at Nailsea Passive House
The Timber Frame is in place and we continue to make good progress at the Passive House in Nailsea, Somerset.
