We are a new group, and have met a couple of times in the pub in Norwich to talk about projects we’re working on, and those construction details you just need to discuss with someone else.

We have visited new housing at Rayne Park in Norwich. This is a council owned new development site and the first phase is over 170 dwellings of which 112 are to passivhaus standard. Carters, who are a well established Norfolk firm showed us round – very impressive what is being achieved there.

We also visited the Co-housing project Cannock Mill in Colchester, where timber frame houses and flats are just going up – so lots of construction details to see, and also the beautiful site which surrounds the old mill pond.
