South facing glazed screens allows the development to benefit from passive solar gains in the winter months when the sun is low, and in the summer months when the sun is higher, to prevent excessive solar gains the glazed screen is shaded at ground and first floor levels with an overhanging roof and balcony.  Solar PV panels generate on site electricity and provide an income from the Feed in Tariff, whilst rainwater harvesting makes good use of the surface water run-off. A high thermal mass using a masonry structure was enhanced with exposed oak beams and purlins, whilst the walls, floor and roof were insulated over and above the regulatory requirements of the building regulations. 

Having gained planning consent for the erection of the home extension from Gedling Borough Council, PD Architecture provided the full technical details for the builders use and for building control assessment to facilitate the extension project in Ravenshead.
