Case Study: The Willcox Project

Eco Friendly House Project

Location: Somerset, England
Materials: 194mm full Sips Kit.

The Story of the Project

Mr and Mrs Willcox were looking to build a 4 bedroomed eco friendly house on their plot in Somerset.

They had planning permission and existing drawings, but wanted their design altered and so employed the services of Sips Eco Panels to revise the drawings and apply for Planning Permission and Building Regulation drawings.

Once planning was successfully obtained, the Willcox’s specified a 194mm Sips Eco Panels frame with rainwater harvesting and photovoltaic tiles to maximize the return on their investment.

The Design

The plans were for a 4 bedroomed eco bungalow utilising Sips Eco Panels roof panels with rooms in the roof and a feature staircase.  The down-stairs was to be open-plan with sloping ceilings and roof-lights to the rear.

The Experience

Mr Willcox said he was “over the moon” with his new home and when you look at the figures to the right, you can see why!

In addition to the exceptional thermal performance of the building, the project was also nominated for “Best Sustainable Eco New Build” from his local council and attained a Highly Commended Award whilst going through to the Regional Finals.  Another satisfied customer!
