Description: The project brief was to create a new sustainable 4-bedroom luxury house and swimming pool to sit alongside a converted 1-bed annex apartment. The existing annex was retained to maintain a breeding roost of Long-Eared Brown Bats in it’s loft roofspace, and the new house was constructed to provide further bat roosting in the full roofspace above a new 10m swimming pool. The construction was a Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) system and the house and pool is heated by a megaflow Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) with 3,600m of underground pipe loops. Phased demoltions (consecutive phases over a 2 year breeding cycles) allowed for the decant of breeding bats from the existing 2-storey house under Natural England Licence.
