LOCATION

DESCRIPTION

The office is located just off the B1046 at Lt Gransden in Cambridgeshire. Access is gained off the adjacent road and ample parking is provided. The A1 trunk road and the M11 are both within easy reach of the site. Mainline railway stations are available at the nearby towns of St Neots, Sandy and Royston providing journey times to London Kings Cross in as little as 37 minutes. The towns above are 10 to 15 minutes away by car and Cambridge is about 30 minutes away.

The office building is at the heart of a range of early Victorian farm buildings. Some of the adjoining buildings have been converted into holiday accommodation.

The site offers the unique selling point in that it includes a private airfield, allowing access by private aeroplane to all parts of the country and Europe. The airfield holds clearances from HM Customs allowing flights direct to or from the continent.

The primary objective during the restoration was to preserve the heritage of the barn by using traditional materials and techniques, such as lime plaster and to combine this with the use of modern green technologies, such as ground source heat pump, under floor heating and the use of hemp and wood fibre insulation. The conversion into office space has sought to produce a highly energy efficient building that has natural light and ventilation that will produce an ergonomic workspace that is very pleasing to be part of.
