As the winter sun shone and perfect waves rolled in, Gale & Snowden were on-site at Oyster Falls along with Point 6 Projects’ Project Manager, the structural engineer, and the client on this milestone day to see the steel frame erected.
As the line of columns along the west facade (which will ultimately be clad in full-height, high-performance triple glazing) enclosed the open-plan, lower ground floor space, for the first time in the course of the build everyone was able to see the living area at Oyster Falls and its panoramic view over Croyde Bay, Lundy and the Atlantic Ocean take shape.
This groundbreaking Passivhaus is due for completion later in 2013. Keep an eye on this blog for more progress photographs.
