Highwood Village Hall is one of the first village halls in the UK to be built using Passivhaus design principles, a rigorous standard for energy efficiency in a building.

Electricity is generated by an array of photovoltaic panels on the south-west facing sloping roof, with solar panels and air source heat pump providing supplementary heating and hot water. There is a real-time public display showing energy generated and carbon dioxide saved from the renewable energy technologies. A variety of measures has also been implemented to reduce water use as well as usage of recycled components within the construction material used. 


Booking is preferred, but not essential.
