On December 3rd 2018 Touchwood Homes were thrilled to have our Andover passivhaus plus project featured as the monthly podcast on the self build blog and support site "Home Planning Help"
"Red Bluff" in Weyhill Andover is the home of Ben and Elle Ribbans, and in this podcast they explain the processes that led them through their self build journey that ultimately realised their dream home, one of the very first to achieve Passivhaus Plus accreditation in the United Kingdom!
Touchwood Homes were contracted to design, supply and erect the timber framework of the building, complete with pre-cut ducting channels, and supply the MVHR unit. We worked together with our long time collaboration partners: Peter Smithdale (Constructive Individuals) producing the architectural detail; and Rod Williams (Williams Energy), overseeing the Passivhaus calculations, certification & MVHR design.
The relationship between Touchwood Homes, Constructive Individuals and Williams Energy is what really makes the difference to our clients in that they can be sure that everyone is working to the same plans and timescales. Having worked as a team through nearly three decades, we have a really in-depth understanding of how our different roles work between ourselves, and we can all trust that we can fully rely on each other to know what needs to be done to achieve a smooth and efficient work flow for our clients.
We hope you enjoy the blog as much as we did, and of course, as always if you have sny questions, please do feel free to get in touch!
