Ten Oaks visit

A fantastic chance for our budding Civil Engineers to visit a new build that envisages the future of green engineering took place last week. 

Ten Oaks house, Chipperfield, will be completely carbon free from construction through to operations exceeding Code For Sustainable Homes Level 6 and PassivHaus.


Architect David Kirkland, KFM, explained the design process. 

Steve Cook – MD Procare Construction, talked us through the challenges of building a zero carbon house regarding material choices and use. 

There was a mix between old product types being used in a new way and the use of very new technology to keep the carbon emissions down on the project.
