We Are A Collective Of Brilliant Specialists

We Love Buildings And We Love To Build

We were commissioned to design an energy efficient nursery extension at Bootham Junior School York, that would not increase the School's existing energy usage.

To achieve this we researched new technologies and construction methods and the extension was designed using PassivHaus energy conservation principles, with the assistannce of LEDA environmental Consultants, based in Leeds. The walls have three times the thickness of standard cavity wall insulation and the roof and floor have twice the normal thickness.

We were delighted that the project won a York Design Award in recognition of everyone's achievements.


“The users of the space were delighted with their new facilities. Bootham School were very satisfied with the design flair and technical expertise to deliver an outwardly simple but technically sophisticated project within challenging budget and programme constraints”
