Chediston, Suffolk

Project Outline

Project description: A traditional style with modern features, this 4-bedroom home in the small Suffolk Village will be built to the exemplar standards of Passivhaus. The 195m2 house has a spacious open plan kitchen / dining room which opens up onto a secluded courtyard garden.

Client: Mr Badger

Client Verdict: "Having completed months of research on different construction methods, it was an easy choice to choose Beattie Passive. We wanted to build a home that would be energy efficient and would provide energy security for the future. We thought why would we continue to pay through the roof for heating when we just won’t need to with a Passivhaus? The great comfort and health benefits are also a plus. My wife suffers from hay fever and the benefits from the new ventilation system will ensure she is not suffering from living in such beautiful countryside. Beattie Passive offers so many added benefits – fire, sound and radon protection to name a few that it made complete sense to use this innovative system to provide the best living environment available for my family. The team at Beattie Passive have been great right from the start, helping us through the process and providing advice and reassurance. It was great to see the manufacture of the panels in the factory and we are very much looking forward to finishing our dream home”.
