Border Oak constructed a brand new oak-framed village hall in Oving, Buckinghamshire. The end result is a beautiful building that is both environmentally and economically sustainable. The hall provides a flexible and attractive meeting space for the local community that blends in with the rural setting. We designed the building to appear traditional, but have modern practicality and technology. It features 21st century sustainable technology by way of photo-voltaic panels on the roof, a rainwater harvesting system (the water collected is used to flush the toilets) and a ground source heat pump that creates the heat for the under-floor heating system. In addition, the hall is extremely well insulated to prevent heat loss and minimise the need for additional heating. The clients were more than happy with the project and the building had become an important focal point of the local community.This village hall won us two awards at the FMB Midland Master Builder Awards 2017, for best Energy Efficient Project and best Commercial Project.
