Stage 3

The client's aim is for this bijoux office in the garden of Millbrook Cottage to be free from fossil fuels, entirely self-sufficient and off-grid. 


Using local sources a micro-hydroelectric system will be installed, supported by a PV installation, to generate enough electricity to meet the small power and lighting needs, as well as the heating demand.

A grey water reed filtration system will be installed to filter the wastewater from the wash-hand basin/sink and shower. A black water compost tank system will be installed to process and filter the waste from the toilet. Rainwater will be collected via a rainfall pipe into a dedicated tank and pumped to serve the wash hand basin.

mstep has ensured that the client's low energy and sustainability objectives have been met.
