THE PROJECT IN DETAIL:
4No Rhino & 4No Giraffe Lodges.
Lodges built in late 2021 to early 2022.
8No turn key eco build lodges constructed from timber frame with insulation between the studs additional insulation on the outside of building to achieve 0.15 w/m2k.
White Haus under took to build all lodges from ground works through to completion, with timber cladding on the outside face of the walls and a heather thatch roof. Building were built on a screw pile system with timber floor cassettes pre-insulated in the factory. Passive purple intelligent membranes used as vapour control on the inside and breather membrane on the outside (including the roof). The lodges were installed with low wattage under floor heat mats as the only source of heating and smart cylinders for hot water. This will monitor the use of hot water and only heat the water as required. We installed decentralised MVHR units in each of the rooms to ensure clean air is pumped into the buildings.
Walls are clad with timber and the under side of the roof is lined with bamboo sheeting to give an ‘African chic’ look.
