We are a RIBA chartered architectural practice, first and foremost.
We are also registered CIBSE Low Carbon Consultants, qualified Certified European PassivHaus Designers and driven by the pursuit of excellence in indoor comfort and building performance.
To this end, we have researched, and become suppliers for, some of the best performing PassivHaus-specific components. In this way, we make ‘building PassivHaus’ achievable and risk-free for clients and main contractors alike: Whole System Thinking.
We offer a comprehensive set of services that can be engaged in their entirety or on a needs basis:
- Full architectural design service: RIBA Stages A-L, from Feasibility Study, through Planning and Detailed Design, to Construction Management and Commissioning.
- Energy consultancy and masterplanning: we use a suite of simulation tools (TAS, PHPP and EcoDesigner) to assess building performance, with or without additional renewable energy pre-feasibility assessments (e.g. solar thermal/ PV, biomass, anaerobic digestion, hydro).
- Specifying agents for a world-beating timber frame system: used to deliver over 300 PassivHaus standard buildings. Typically, a standard-size house structure can be erected, airtight (<0.6 h-1)
Our depth of expertise, innovative thinking and experience enable us to deliver both functional and beautiful buildings that result in lower operating and maintenance costs: Integrated PassivHaus Design.
