Callaughtons Ash in Much Wenlock, Shropshire is a certified exemplar Passivhaus scheme consisting of a mix of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom homes for social rent and shared ownership. Lowfield Timber Frames translated the architect’s designs to create a fully bespoke timber system, applying a fabric first approach that requires minimal energy. The fabric first approach enables comfortable lifestyles for residents while minimising operational costs to below £100 per annum for average housing types, which is in line with the housing association’s core value: affordable, low-energy accommodation.
