BBS has been appointed Building Control on an extensive refurbishment and re-modelling of an existing commercial property in the heart of Tunbridge Wells. The scheme involves the strip-out and de-construction of the 3-storey building back to its original concrete frame. The subsequent re-build includes two additional storeys and a large rear extension.
The building will feature a bronze clad louvre screen to provide protection from solar gain and privacy for the tenant. Bronze will also be used in the new entrance, circulation core and in the box framed cladding of several windows on the main façade.
The energy modelling of the building is being undertaken by the BBS Environmental Team.

BBS has been appointed Building Control on a project at Wooda Farm Holiday Park, by Trewin Design Architects, to oversee the construction of twenty holiday lodges. The site is located in the rural landscape of North West Cornwall approximately 3 kilometres North East of Bude. The site is located in the neighbouring field to the holiday park complex and close to the village of Poughill.
The Eco Holiday Lodges themselves will be positioned in sweeping linear curves, cut into the sloping site and screened by planting banks. Cutting into the site will reduce the impact on views into the site and from the outlook of units behind, creating expansive views for the guests. The units themselves will be constructed from locally sourced materials that will be sympathetic to the area and the site. The structures will create generous open plan spaces to mirror the wide open views towards the coast. The units will be suitable for occupation throughout the year. The units will be energy efficient and serviced by ‘renewable’ means. Bi-product waste will be minimised and recycled. A biomass boiler housed in a separate unit will provide hot water and heating requirements. The ethos of the eco lodges is shared with the guests through the buildings high performance, easy of use and pleasant internal environment.
Each unit will be designed to incorporate zero carbon technology and other sustainable qualities to meet with the requirements of the Code for Sustainable Homes published by DCLG.

Situated on the west side of the beautiful Cuckmere Valley, between Brighton and Eastbourne, lies the picturesque Rathfinney Estate, England’s largest vineyard.
The first vines were planted in March 2012 and phase 1 of construction, the Winery, is now complete. Beauty and sustainability are at the heart of this ambitious project. Groundwater is sourced from the Estate’s own bore hole and photo-voltaic panels ensure the entire enterprise is energy self-sufficient. The Winery’s grass covered curved roof mirrors the contours of the surrounding landscape.
BBS Building Control is proud to have been involved in such an interesting and unique project.
