VolkerLaser constructed lime hemp walling at this new build eco-luxury spa on the Coworth Park Estate in Ascot. Working closely with architect, Purcell Miller Tritton and main contractor, Galliford Try, our team provided specialist advice for this exemplar sustainable building.
This pioneering sustainable building sits in the beautiful landscape of Coworth Park Country House Hotel. It has been designed to meet two key aspirations: the building's volume and footprint to be kept to a minimum and the spa to be intimately related to its sensitive green belt setting.
Sustainability was a key driver, with a timber glulam monocoque frame and lime hemp walling contributing to the spa's carbon negative design. A biomass boiler and closed loop ground water heat transfer system meet around half of the its energy demands.
VolkerLaser's experts advised upon and carried out the construction of lime hemp walling to the new spa building. Hemcrete® was specified because of its carbon negative qualities and high thermal performance, as well as being a natural, sustainable material, consistent with the spa's ethos.
