Ashfield delivers fully controlled environment


Ashfield Building Group has completed an exciting new project to create an exceptional contemporary home in the attractive spa town of Ilkley.

This impressive scheme combines striking modern aesthetics with the latest energy-efficient technology and materials. In keeping with highly sustainable building objectives, the project includes a MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery) system which provides fresh filtered air into the building whilst retaining most of the energy that has already been used in heating it. Ashfield have also incorporated eco-friendly features including photovoltaic panels and a proprietary green roof secured on powder coated aluminium facias and trims.

The property occupies one of Ilkley’s most sought-after residential locations. The two-storey internal accommodation is highly specified throughout and includes a ground floor comprising open-plan dining kitchen, WC/cloakroom and bedroom. The first floor features a spacious lounge, main bathroom and master bedroom. The external elevations combine a range of finishes including natural stone, timber cladding and powder coated aluminium.

Ashfield Building Group Director, Joel Ramsden, said:

“Ashfield Building Group were delighted to collaborate with Sense of Space, an award-winning practice with renowned expertise in education, commercial and residential projects that complements our own expertise. The scheme at Cheltenham Avenue typifies the quality of their vision and the life-enhancing design which is at the core of their approach. We relished the task of bringing that design concept to fruition and the results are outstanding.”

All of the teams and stakeholders involved in the project agree with Ashfield’s assessment of the finished article. The clients, Nick and Pamela Pierce, offered glowing praise for Ashfield’s ability to deliver a combination of desirable living space and outstanding levels of building performance:

“Many thanks to Ashfield for crafting our sustainable, low energy, forever home. As novice developers, we began with considerable trepidation and probably fell foul of every pitfall going, but Krystian and his Ashfield team were always on hand to help us through and find the best solutions to the inevitable challenges.  An air tightness result of under 3m3/hr/m2,  is testament to Ashfield’s care and attention to detail during construction. The end result is a lovely home, with energy rating A, delivered under budget.”
