Greenslade Taylor Hunt - Hornshay Farm

Published by Greenslade Taylor Hunt on 1st November 2019 -


Before: These listed barns were in a very poor state of repair and were given a new lease of life. GTH Project Architect, Nick Ratcliff, produced a comprehensive set of drawings for the barn conversion which were fully compliant with the Building Regulations yet retained the character of the barns, providing accomodation for modern family living. Prior to work starting on site, an extensive ecological survey was undertaken to establish the existence of bats and nesting birds. The build schedule was planned accordingly and detailed mitigation measures were adhered to, in order to protect roosting bats and nesting birds, in conjuction with a qualified Ecologist. 

After: This conversion achieved the requirement to produce completed buildings that retained their historical featuers within the imposed ecological and planning restraints. The first barn was sold 'off plan' to someone who had the vision to see what could be achieved and was completed to the clients' requirements and within budget. Many design features lend themselves to low energy and life cycle costs including Air Aource Heat Pumps, LED lighting plus Argon filled double glazing. A wood burning stove adds to lower carbon output. In addition, approximately 60% of the exsisting roof tiles were saved from the barns roofs.
