Another Listed Building needing an Energy Upgrade

This Grade II Listed former textiles mill is undergoing a change of use to residential use with groundfloor office space.  We are working with Greenheart Sustainable Construction to develop the detailed plans for the conversion, making the building energy efficient and comfortable to live in, whilst being sensitive to the buildings heritage.  

Insulating old solid walled buildings needs to be done with care and a whole house approach will be taken to include insulation, wiondow upgrades, airithghtness, ventilation, heating and hot water.  

The fundamental strategy is to select appropriate, mainly natural, building materials and get the ventilation and vapour control right.
