The Environment Matters
The Learning Escape was developed with the environment in mind; by creating beautiful yet innovatively designed buildings. We pride ourselves in using the latest developments in technology as part of our build process to help reduce the impact on our fragile planet. Our mission is to dramatically improve the normal construction method by creating ecological, healthy and sustainable buildings for your home, school or business.
We're supporting The Blue Marble
Here at TG Escapes we're very excited about the lanuch of the The Blue Marble, a new online community and magazine delivered in collaboration with Keep Britain Tidy and Eco-Schools. Its going to connect people, schools, teachers, organisations and authorities with common causes and purpose around sustainability and environmental awareness. We liked the sound of that so we thought you might too.
The Learning Escape's Eco Classrooms combine innovative design with the natural beauty of wood and glass; traditional materials combined with sophisticated technology to create an eco building with a difference. We can create the perfect building to suit your individual needs and adapt our design anyway to fit into the location you choose. This helps reduce its impact on your local area.
The materials we use in the construction of our Learning Escapes are integral to our eco-friendly credentials.
The foundations have been designed to reduce impact by using a minimal amount of concrete in our unique pad based system.
The timber comes from sustainable forest. Sustainable forests are managing to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs by practising a land stewardship ethic which integrates the reforestation, managing, growing, nurturing and harvesting of trees for useful products with the conservation of soil, air, and water quality, and wildlife and fish habitat.
The glass wool insulation is manufactured from a combination of silica sand and up to 80% recycled post-consumer glass from building regeneration projects or flat glass manufacture that would otherwise go to landfill. This makes it one of the most environmentally sustainable insulation products on the market today.
Living roofs, Sun pipes & renewable energy
We can add many options to create the most environmentally friendly building possible.
A Sedum roof is not only aesthetically pleasing all year round, but also provides a habitat for a rich variety of wildlife. A sedum roof significantly reduces rainwater runoff whilst lowering energy consumption.
Sun pipes literally capture daylight from the rooftop through highly reflective tubing and take it to where it’s needed offering brilliant natural light as an alternative to artificial lighting.
Wind and solar power can be used as a clean renewable source of energy, which produce no carbon dioxide emissions or waste products.
