Low-Energy Retrofit of 4 Bedroom Terraced House
We are currently on-site with this project in Stamford Brook. It is a total retrofit and refurbishment in a conservation area with sash windows at the front elevation. A large basement is also being added. Due to planning constraints we are fitting internal insulation to the front elevation and external to the rear. A variety of insulation materials and thermal isolation techniques are being employed.
This is our third project with bere:architects who are well-known Passivhaus architects. We are grateful to have an open and fruitful collaborative relationship with them. We will shortly be starting a another project for Bere in Hammersmith and one in Oxford.
We are holding a Green Register workshop at this site at 4pm the 27th of February 2019 which is now sold out.
Hi all, just wanted to say, we are really impressed with your team in Bounds Green, they are doing such a brilliant job, and are a credit to your company. We’re really lucky to have them working on our project. Thanks for all your fantastic work so far too.

"Rafael Delimata project managed an extension and new kitchen to our Victorian house in 2010. (...) We found him polite and enthusiastic, and very quick to grasp what we wanted from the build - he has great communication skills. He was involved from the beginning and contributed useful ideas and suggestions throughout the project. He is particularly knowledgeable about green issues and we now have a kitchen/breakfast room which is easy and cheap to heat in the winter and cool in the summer. Our previous experiences with builders have not been good - we are demanding clients with backgrounds in interior design, so we are probably not the easiest of customers, but we would have no hesitation in working with Rafael Delimata again and would recommend him to others."

“The house definitely meets expectations and exceeds them in some areas, the heat comfort is very big, the noise is much less than it was, overall very happy with it.”
