Free Church

This project was self-funded with limited funds, yet we were able to deliver a building to a very high standard of finish with exceptional environmental performance.

Passive house techniques were adopted to reduce the amount of energy the building would need. This meant that funds could be spent on heat recovery ventilation with no need for underfloor heating or a gas boiler.

The building was procured using skilled people within the church, the end result is a very high performance, low-energy structure built with very limited funds.
