Build Your Dream Home with Orchard Farm Kent
Allan Corfield Architects are proud to be amongst the network of experts in the Orchard Farm Self-Build community. This exciting opportunity is on track to be one of the biggest Self Build communities in the UK. We at ACA are offering you the opportunity to build the home of your dreams on this breathtaking plot, and we’re about to tell you how.
WHAT IS ORCHARD FARM?
Orchard Farm is a new development site located in Kennington, on the northern edge of Ashford. Created by Urbanise and Steenvlinder, this exciting new plot will look to create a sustainable Self Build community in the southwest of England.
The site will have different-sized Self Build plots and will be perfectly located for a green and active community. Initially, 25 Self Build plots will be released in 2023 and we are excited to be one of the preferred partners for the development. Orchard Farm plans to have over 100 custom-built homes in the coming years.
“At Orchard Farm you will create a unique home and be part of a special green and active community. You will live amongst people who have invested in the creation of their home and who will be proud of what they have achieved.”
Orchard Farm will look to promote a low-carbon lifestyle while remaining inclusive to a number of different lifestyles. The plot will provide a large range of shapes and house sizes, with infrastructure – such as electricity, roads and drains – already in place.
Orchard Farm will appeal to people who want to build their own homes, either entirely by themselves or with the help of an architect and builder. Though it’s not just architects on hand to help you. Orchard Farm has a long list of contractors, cost surveyors, mortgage advisors, and sustainability advisors who are on hand to assist you in building your dream home.
WORKING WITH ACA
As one of the leading Self Build specialists, with over 500 residential projects completed across the UK – our team of experts based in Dunfermline and at the NSBRC in Swindon is the perfect choice.
For over 14 years, ACA have been helping self-builders design their low-energy dream homes built around the Fabric First approach, utilising modern methods of construction such as ICF, SIPS, and Timber Frame. ACA have worked on over 500 projects across the UK, from small extensions to substantial housing developments. Our RIBA Chartered Practice has grown into a team of talented architects, technicians, support staff, and even boasts an in-house team of structural engineers.
We are always striving to create projects that prioritise energy efficiency and long-term satisfaction. Along with our expertise in a variety of build methods, we can also provide full Passive House design and certification.
We are here to assist and educate the self-builder throughout the build process, from the traditional parts of the architect’s role – such as the planning, building control and technical drawings for the Self Build – right through to developing a build schedule and engaging with sub-contractors. We love working closely with self-builders on their new adventure, and all the challenges that come with it.
