We are delighted to have been awarded 'Best Civic Development' at the Bristol Property Awards this week for our Passive House café and learning space for Goldfinch Create and Play, constructed by Earthwise Construction.
In giving the award, judges said 'It’s such a brilliant concept – very merit-worthy. Smart collaboration with highly appealing outcome: love what they do.'
Goldfinch Create and Play is a café in Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol, which runs child-oriented craft classes, as well as hosting other activities such as yoga. The café was built using timber frame construction, to the extremely stringent 'Passive House Classic' thermal performance and comfort standard. Passive House buildings have high levels of insulation, air tightness, and triple glazing. Almost all of the energy used by the building is generated on site using photovoltaic panels and an air source heat pump.
