Built in 2013/2014, this new purpose built crèche is for an established operator. The building is a high efficiency timber frame construction with excellent levels of air tightness and U values. This results in near passive levels of heat load and we expect the “A” rated building to use less than 30 kWh/m2yr. There is underfloor heating throughout, with each room being a dedicated zone. Heat recovery ventilation is also provided and this required co-ordination with the timber frame construction to ensure the ducting could be accommodated.
