AECB conference 2016

"AECB conference 2016 july 16th/17th, at the delightful Adapt building at University of East Anglia, designed by Archetype  built by Morgan Sindall. 
Architect and Design Manager explained the building together in a double act that clearly demonstrated how well they had worked together - the inside spaces are a joy to be in, the only time I have sat on a platform in a lecture hall and seen out of the building through glass to trees beyond, a glorious feeling of space.  Great discussions throughout. Visits to my straw bale house and new passivhouses in Norwich "

Client moves into York passivhaus

'Now that I have been in for a couple of months I can really appreciate how brilliantly
the house has been designed and built. Everyone who comes is amazed at how good it 
looks and feels, even with boxes still piled up everywhere’ 

Certification plaque was fixed up to applause and thanks to contractor Croft Farm Construction

"It’s been a great job to work on -  a pleasure to work with both client and Contractor. 
Congratulations city of York to your first certified passivhaus, and may there be many more!
We hope the house will be open again for interested visitors, at next year’s Passivhaus Open 
Day in November”
