Harnessing renewable energy

Passive House efficiency

Discover how we can help you realise the full potential of your home through award-winning sustainable design.

We believe that a well-designed home can play a crucial role in reducing environmental impact. By incorporating the latest technological advancements in 3D computer-aided design using Autodesk Revit, we can optimise building placement for solar gain and utilise solar analysis diagrams to prevent overheating during the summer months.

Our projects often feature renewable energy solutions such as ground source heat pumps (GSHP), air source heat pumps (ASHP), mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR), and both solar thermal and photovoltaic solar panels. We advocate for the use of locally sourced materials, including timber, stone, slate, and clay plaster, to further enhance sustainability.

Embracing Passive House techniques and efficient detailing, we work closely with expert energy consultants to develop energy-efficient, low-carbon homes that surpass current building regulations. Our experience extends to remote sites, including off-grid homes equipped with solar electric battery storage, providing a sustainable alternative to costly grid connections. Our goal is to achieve a light environmental footprint with every project.
