Under Floor Heating using an air source heat pump.
Duh, mind wasn't working well last night , I have also installed UFH in homes but used a natural gas, on demand boiler for the heat source. Will the heat pump deliver good constant temps when needed?

I understand that it will. The workshop is a complete new build and is designed to exceed house standards for insulation. So, the system should run at under 50C well within an air source heat pumps abilities. The big question will be how much it costs to run.
I have installed UFH through my house as part of the renovation, this is heated by a gas boiler. However, it’s designed and installed to run off two 17KW heat pumps if and when I swap it / forced to use electric heating. The workshop is a test bed.
The workshop is a complete extravaganza, but it’s also designed such that it can be converted into a house or indeed any form of living / work environment. So hopefully my kids will get the money back when my executers come to sell it😜👻

It is definitely more than a shop!

I will have to check the specs of it but we have an air source pool heater. Very good and last year cost about an extra 30-40 quid overall on the bill for the four months we had it going. That's heating a 48 cubic metre pool to 28°. Not equivalent to running a domestic heating system obviously, but I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
Bonus for the pool heater is when it gets really hot you can sit in front of the fan and have your own outside Aircon :)

Late to this, I have two electric insulated roller shutter garage doors made by 'Alluguard'. ( tel:01524772400) They are aluminium hollow section filled with rigid foam, run in deep channels and roll up into a 13" square space. They are very rigid and have a hand winding facility in the event of power failures. The lower edge has a safety touch stop feature which proved itself when my wife inadvertently lowered one door onto a box. They're remarkably draught proof and the bottom seal, closing onto smooth concrete copes with driving rain.
Not the cheapest option but given the probable expense of your project, worth considering.

I hope this is of interest.
 
@Chubber Thanks the recommendation and contact details. It’s ’too late’ for me, I went down the BiFold route and have filled the three doorways with BiFolds which were unbelievable the cheapest option compared the insulated garage doors.
 
This is the stuff of my lottery winning dreams and definitely nicer than my house !!

Do you think you have enough lights ?:D
