Paultons Park Peppa Pig Building Case Study
This case study looks at the building of a new feature at Paultons theme park in Hampshire by HPW.
The building concept developed out of this need and also as a new home for the parks Peppa Pig attraction. As a result of the environmental focus of the character, HPW proposed and developed a concept with low energy and low carbon credentials.
A key aspect of the project was the sensitivity of the location in the New Forest and minimizing impact both visually and environmentally. All excavated material has been retained and used to landscape the rear of the building respond directly to the setting.
The building features North – South orientation, wind catchers, wildflower roof (with rainwater harvesting irrigation system), full SUDS system, hybrid Glulam and steel frame, locally sourced timber rain-screen cladding, underfloor heating and a super insulated shell. The wind-catchers have photovoltaic built into the South facing tops.
