A new modern home with very high Eco-standards, in fact designed as a a PASSIV house. We integrated modern design with modern systems to deliver a new home in Uplyme near Lyme Regis Dorset. The site had a slight slope on across it, which made drainage easy, but beneath it Green Sand was lurking, we had to be very careful to get the house in the right place. if we didn’t, and we took the plug out of the bath, green sand would ooze out, potentially cause subsidence in other areas of the village. We had to dig trial pits to assess the correct location for the house.
