Northbrook is a new build house located in the Surrey Hills, an area designated as of outstanding natural beauty. The architectural design concept is to provide a contemporary interpretation of a classic English country house and the house is arranged to maximize views across the site. The site has no gas supply and the Client is keen to utilize sustainable design and low energy technologies. Therefore the MEP design proposals are for a ground source heat pump system with vertical boreholes supplemented by solar hot water panels and with natural ventilation. We have carried out a full dynamic thermal modelling exercise and explored overheating and various energy consumption scenarios.
