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.
