A unique Passivhaus Cohousing project in Colchester, Essex for Jerram Falkus Construction. The works included the provision of bespoke kitchens, staircases (CNC cut) and vanity units for 23 new individual homes.
The development also included the refurbishment of a Grade II listed Mill which has become the common house with space for the group to share meals and leisure activities together, as well as guest accommodation and a cycle store. We provided a new staircase to the millhouse and an additional communal kitchen facilty.
The buildings are designed to and certified as ‘Passivhaus’ registered on the Passivhaus database. The project was built to achieve exceptionally low running costs, sustainable comfort and health, including to Lifetime Homes standards.
