Offsite building provider, Green Unit, has installed their ARC™ eco-building at the environmentally-conscious holiday resort, Great Field Farm, near Canterbury
The eco-building, known as the Green Unit ARC™, was manufactured offsite in modular sections and delivered to the Great Field Farm site virtually complete.
The offsite building’s unique curved design mimics the natural environment, and the use of sustainable materials creates a relaxing getaway for holiday goers. The building is positioned on a prime spot within Great Field Farm overlooking green vistas.
The 90 sqm building is equipped with environmentally-friendly features such as a green roof, a heat exchange system, infra-red underfloor heating, and smart sensors to regulate pollen, CO₂ levels, ventilation, heating and lighting. The offsite building’s three bedrooms comfortably sleep six people.
Lewana Castle, owner-manager of Great Field Farm, said that she and her husband “just fell in love with the concept and design of the ARC™ as soon as they saw it.”
“We chose the Green Unit ARC as we liked the idea that it can be built under cover in the winter, is delivered practically complete, and that disruption on our site is minimal, so not affecting our other holiday guests.
“Our guests will love the new experience of living in the round of the curved building, and I think they’ll be interested in the ARC’s sustainable features and clever technology.”
Jonathan Finnerty, managing director of Green Unit, added: “The Great Field Farm project marks an important milestone for Green Unit as we deliver the ARC into what we expect to be the first of many businesses within the UK tourism sector.”
