The Longhouse was designed with the environment always at the forefront, in line with Mill on the Brue’s ethos. We wanted to make The Longhouse an environmental showcase for the south west of England.
The design has purposely minimised the amount of concrete used to cover its base for foundations. Instead a mixture of reinforced pillar foundations and where necessary, the conventional concrete flooring, means less impact on the overall area of the site.
The build incorporated a 27,500 litre rain water storage tank. The water is pumped up to the building to flush all the lavatories. All have half and full flush facility.
