OUR UNIQUE PROCESS
We believe today’s Passive & High performance homes demand a reliable, robust, high thermal performance building envelope, which drives energy-efficiency, prevents heat loss, eliminates thermal bridging and controls solar gain over their lifetime. These criteria are key performance factors in achieving a Passive, low energy or Near Passive home, minimising energy running costs and reducing carbon emissions for any home, while maximising the energy efficiency of the home.
We offer the most comprehensive self build package available on the market. We take the difficulty out of the build for you and offer a tailor made package to suit your needs.
