ADL Office, Windermere

ADL’s aspiration was to provide an open plan working environment with meeting facilites and storage.  Level access has been provided from the upper ground level to the office as well as to the residential accommodation below.

Because we felt it was essential that local tradesmen should be used for sustainable reasons, traditional materials were adopted.  A considerable amount of insulation was provided to achieve low energy costs.  Provision was made for a retro fitting of photo-voltaic panels when suitable advances in technology make the proposition viable.  An air source heat pump is used to provide energy efficient heating within the building.
