New Build Eco Home, North East Derbyshire

New Build Eco Home in North East Derbyshire. The gently sloping, southerly aspect of the site offers an excellent opportunity to design a layout and to orientate the house so that it is more energy efficient with passive solar gain being easily achieved via South facing double glazing. This will be combined with the use of thermally massive materials such as a Derbyshire lime-stone internal floor to capture the suns heat during the day and warm the house during the night. The walls will be designed to allow for an optimum amount of insulation in order to achieve a U-value which exceeds that required by Building
regulations.
