Sustainability is an everyday part of any building project. The challenge can be how best to weave sustainability into a project with practical answers that can deliver improvements to a client’s building and enjoyment of their house.
Our ethos is simple: sustainable building is for everyone and advice is based around what will make your home comfortable to live with and inexpensive to run.
We care about the environment but we like to be pragmatic in our advice. This enables clients to do their bit for the environment whilst also benefiting from a better thought out project that suits their lifestyle choices and matches them with the appropriate fabric and technology.
Whilst not everyone wants to build an eco house, we can help you to make informed decisions about sustainability whatever the building project, budget and lifestyle choices. For example, considerations for sustainable housing would balance occupants’ needs, health and wellbeing and affordability. We would consider what aspects to encompass that will enhance your comfort and adapt to the changing needs of the property, such as natural daylight, freedom from noise, good ventilation etc.
Fabric of the house: we can tailor the performance of the house according to your needs through the use of the appropriate fabrics whether highly technical, membranes, petroleum foams to more natural products minimising energy consumption etc.
Technology employed: we are independent of any technology and have considerable experience in specifying renewable technology.
Underpinning our advice is a desire to minimise cost of ownership through reduced energy consumption.
