Agricultural Barn Conversion
This Class Q steel framed Dutch barn was approved via Permitted development and converted into a 4 bedroom dwelling.
A straw bale infill system was used in the conversion. An internal glulam frame was used to support the new mezzanine floor. Only natural and renewable insulations were used throughout. The majority of construction work was carried out by Terrra Perma.
The site is in a flood risk area, so the bottom 500ml is designed to be flood resilient.
An air leakage rate of only 1.03m³/m²h was achieved.
It was assessed using Passivhaus software and designed to AECB Carbonlite Silver Standard.
