House scrappage scheme in Wexford


U&W Builders from Wexford started taking garden sheds as trade ins on dwellings in a new Housing estate in Curracloe Co. Wexford. 

Sheds can be timber or steel. The new small homes are timber built and A rated. 
First time home buyer that do not have a garden shed, may ask parents to offer their garden shed to help them climb the property ladder. If proven successful the builders may consider Camper vans as trade ins as well.

Year in Review - 2018 Winkens Architecture



The year began with a completion of a BER A2 Bungalow in Bunclody, Co. Wexford in January.


We continued to concentrate on the  residential sector.





In June the office purchased a MAVIC AIR Drone.

Aerial photos are great to get a bird’s eye view.

This one near Kilmuckridge, Co. Wexford.








The last 6 dwellings designed or completed in 2018 are low energy designs, 
2 with BER A1 and 
4 with BER A2’s.
All are nZeb compliant.

This one is a BER A2 Bungalow on a hill in Bunclody, Co. Wexford.





Passive House Plus published our second Certified Passive house with a BER rating of A1 in their Issue 27 2018. 






This photo was taken in December 2018. Dormer with a preliminary BER of A1 with 4kw of Photo voltaic and a Battery system.
We could not do what we do without good clients who trust our expertise. We have been very fortunate having clients that choose us to design and supervise their builds.
We look forward to continue designing low energy dwellings in 2019 and beyond.
