Low carbon energy technologies throughout this sustainable building fabricated for Coolings.

Fordingbridge designed and constructed this attractive timber framed building providing Coolings Green and Pleasant with 1500m² of retail space.

The building has two contemporary low carbon technologies that contribute to its high energy performance; contemporary solar thermal and biomass technologies utilise the sun’s energy in different ways and contribute to the building’s energy demands.

Features include:

  • Curved sustainably sourced FSC accredited glulaminated timber frame
  • Generous integrated external canopies provide shaded terraces protected from wind and rain
  • Low maintenance highly insulated composite walls and roof to reduce heat loss from the building
  • Straw bale wall construction for extra insulation
  • Thermowood cladding provides an attractive finish
  • Locally reclaimed timber flooring
  • Grey water harvesting for watering plants and flushing toilets
  • Automatically opening natural ventilation reduces the need for air conditioning.
  • Solar heated hot water
  • Biomass boiler
