Modular Eco-building for Kent Holiday Resort

12th July, 2019

Oxfordshire based Green Unit have installed their ARC™ eco-building at the environmentally-conscious, self-catering holiday resort, Great Field Farm, near Canterbury. The premium 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 90sq m building is equipped with a green roof, a heat exchange system, infra-red underfloor heating and smart sensors to regulate pollen, CO2 levels, ventilation, heating and lighting. The building’s three bedrooms comfortably sleep six people, and it boasts a westerly facing glazed end where guests can enjoy stunning sunsets within the state-of-the-art kitchen and a beautiful living space.

The new accommodation offers a unique opportunity to expand their environmentally conscious business, allowing the couple to cater to the demand for larger families and groups.

“We chose the Green Unit ARC as we liked the idea that it can be built under cover in the winter and delivered practically complete,” said owner Lewana Castle.” And that disruption on our site is minimal, so not affecting our other holiday guests. We pride our business on offering guests the space and freedom of the outdoors, but with the warmth and comfort of a house, and the new ARC building offers exactly that. 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.” The building’s unique curved design mimics the natural environment, and the use of sustainable materials creates a calm and relaxing getaway for holiday goers in the heart of the Kent Downs.
