Urbane Eco: taking sustainable building to the next level

The move towards more energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly buildings has come a long way in the last few decades.
But nowhere near enough if we, as a nation and as individuals, are to play a full part in tackling climate change and reducing our dependency on damaging fossil fuels.
If you want your home or commercial premises to truly be an “eco-friendly”, sustainable building, you really should be talking to us. We can drastically reduce your energy consumption and fuel bills while making it a healthier building to live or work in.

Building biology means healthy buildings

As well as creating and retro-fitting structures to achieve startling new levels of energy efficiency, we harness the massive potential of natural materials to construct green buildings that have minimal environmental impact, are hypoallergenic, and with the optimum levels of airtightness and airflow to make them pleasant as well as healthy buildings to be in.

Passive Houses: maximum energy savings, minimum environmental impact

Our Passivehaus designs, for example, don’t just reduce energy consumption to a tiny fraction of traditional “energy efficient” buildings through super insulation, triple glazing, draughtproofing and low energy building materials. They optimise the availability of renewable energy sources too, such as solar, heat pumps, heat recovery and battery storage.
Buildings really needn’t cost the Earth. So, if you want to do more than just tick the boxes on green building, get in touch with the experts.

Urbane Eco: let’s work together to build a sustainable future.

Urbane Eco undertook a whole-house refurbishment on our 150 year old Victorian property, including complete stripping out and replacement of joists and beams. The team did an excellent job, were always friendly and happy to work closely with us on our requirements and preferences. The attention to detail in finishing off was excellent and the property now looks as good as new Mr. Mccullen
Conscientious, punctual and tidy – job done on schedule by people who clearly care about their work. Site left very clean and all rubbish and surplus removed. A massive improvement in the appearance and warmth of the buildingMr. Barnard

    “House is much more pleasant, cozy, warms up faster and stays warm. Very pleased with the insulation… Had lots of compliments on our huge blue wall from passers by and people interested in external wall insulation” (Wood fibre external wall insulation, Montpelier)
  • Home
    “I was very impressed with the way your operatives worked diligently and accurately to achieve a remarkable standard of finish. Nothing was too much trouble in achieving a fully finished and well detailed result. The external insulation and render has been the most significant aspect in the transformation of this previously unloved house into a beautiful and comfortable home.” – Geoff Haslam, Architect and Project Manager (Graphite EPS external wall insulation, Bristol)
  • Home
    “The back of the house (where we had the insulation) has been noticeably warmer, and noticeably more comfortable. Not only has the insulation made a difference, but the back of the house looks really good too.” – Rachel Allbless, St Agnes (Graphite EPS external wall insulation)
  • Buy wood fibre insulation boards – Pavatex Pavadentro and Diffutherm for internal and external wall insulation
  • Buy breathable membranes, tapes and airtightness systems. Roof and wall membranes for retrofit and new build with airtightness tapes.
  • Buy breathable lime renders and plasters for use with wood fibre insulation boards
