About us

The sustainable building specialists

Urbane Eco is a leading sustainable building company based in Bristol. Managing Director Nick Lloyd has been a builder for over forty years and has taken a special interest in sustainable building and energy efficiency over the last 10+ years. 

We install solid wall insulation, floor insulation, energy efficient windows and doors and warm roof systems. We also undertake whole house retrofits, as well as other building work, such as eco-friendly loft conversions and extensions. With our years of experience, we also have the expertise to take on new builds to PassivHaus standard or equivalent.

We believe that as well as being energy efficient, houses should be healthy places to live too – and our approach takes into account issues such as retained moisture, humidity, and the wider impact on the environment.

For more about us and our work, check out our blogs here.

We are members of the Green Register, and Nick is on the steering group. We are also proud sponsors of Bristol Green Doors. We are also members of AECB – The Association for Environment Conscious Building.

We are approved installers of Pavatex wood fibre insulation systems, Unger-Diffutherm wood fibre insulation systems and Knauf ThermoShell External systems.
