The CREST Pavilion is now handed over to the client, South West College. All the building works are complete and external grassing and landscaping is being left until the planting season.
The air tightness, as already mentioned in previous diary entries, is crucial for the overall success of the building and for achieving the stringent passive house standards that were set at the outset of the project. In previous diary entries, we have discussed the high risk air leakage components such as wall openings, floor-to-wall junctions
This is an exhilarating stage for the entire team involved; the beginnings of the both the newest and largest CREST pavilion becoming reality. After thorough research, design and planning the CREST Pavilion, one of the most sustainable projects in the UK is now ready for construction to commence with site clearing having already commenced
Over the following months, Paul McAlister Architects will be writing a regular diary documenting the construction of the much anticipated CREST Pavilion in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. Similarly to the ‘Passivhaus diaries’ we will discuss in detail the design and construction of the CREST Pavilion, focusing on the challenges and rewards of sustainable architecture.
