Ecobuild 2016

ecobuild 2016

We’re at Excel today for Ecobuild 2016. Always such a brilliant place to discover new building materials and also have the opportunity to meet with a wide variety of industry professionals all under one roof. We’re keen to firm up on roofing materials and windows at the moment so this exhibition is perfectly timed for us!

Osram LED lights forever!

Today is a great day for us, we’re going live with our partnership with Osram & Voltimum. We’re excited that the West Wittering Beach House lighting installation will use OSRAM LED light sources throughout – chosen for their long life, good light, energy saving, and all the other benefits that LEDs confer. LED lighting is to be employed for general, mood and task lighting.

We will also be using OSRAM’s innovative connected lighting system, Lightify. We chose this primarily for its colour and brightness changing mood effects and we’ll be using it for specific applications, such as mood and task lighting.

The journey so far…

We’ve spent the winter months with our heads down, beavering away at the drawing board and researching the technologies and materials we’d like to use. On the practical side, every detail has been considered from where’s best to wash sandy feet to how to incorporate the children’s brief for a secret Narnia style hideaway. The architectural plans are now complete, we have walked the site with our builder and work has started.
