Kielder Workshops and District Heating Scheme


This project comprised of starter workshop units of varying size in this isolated community in Northumberland, to assist in the regeneration of the local economy.

These workshops are popular, providing interesting spaces and are a departure from the often dull industrial estate. Adjacent to the workshops is the Kielder District Heating System using a biomass energy source: wood chips sourced from the surrounding Kielder Forest.

The system was funded as a demonstration project to generate interest in biomass technology in the north of England.
