Sustainable Homes & Building for Energy Efficiency

It all starts with clever passive solar design which can be used to optimise the free energy from the sun by choosing optimum orientation, shading techniques and the correct thermal glazing, including the size and style of window and position in the house. Sustainable materials are selected on a life cycle basis, considering environmental impacts during procurement and sourcing sustainably-harvested materials with low embodied energy. For example selecting our timber supply from local plantation forests, looking at the distance required to travel for manufacturing and then distance required to supply to site. Also considering the product use and its long term durability and quality which offer a secure investment and doesn't compare or compete with the cheaper products (often imported).
