Soaring temperatures in Kent this week have left staff here at Achievements a bit hot! The temperature in the care this morning read 20 degrees, and it was not even 8 am. However, the advantages of working in a medieval building have really come into their own. Whilst our headquarters has a Georgian frontage, the main section of the building dates from the 13th century, and is timber frame, with the walls made from wattle and daub.
As such, it is a very good place to be in extreme heat, and the building remains cool. This is definitely an advantage this week, but come winter, it is difficult to effectively heat such a large, old building!
