Building a new property affords you the freedom to determine exactly what materials and techniques will be used, whether it's timber frame construction, or something more conventional. In addition to building beautiful, bespoke properties, EcoVert Solutions enhances their long-term value using sustainable and energy-efficient materials and technologies.
Starting a project from scratch allows EcoVert Solutions to draw on its wealth of experience to vastly improve the energy performance of your home compared with Building Regulations.
We specialise in Passivhaus methodology, due to the superior energy efficiency and clarity of approach, but are equally skilled in other low-energy building standards such as AECB Silver.
From the initial design process, we can provide architectural services, taking into account energy efficiency, including:
Amount and location of glazing.
Optimum wall build-up in order to accommodate maximum insulation.
We can work with you on every aspect of the design and build of your new property, delivering:
Expert advice on which materials and technologies would be most suitable and cost-effective, based on your design choices.
Architectural services and design consultation including design to Passivhaus standards
Access to in-house team with - in addition to "standard" building skills - proven expertise in MVHR installation, installation of air tightness products, instalation of triple-glazed windows, thermal imaging to build to exacting standards, and your exact specifications.
Access to trusted network of suppliers and contractors
A project plan that will be meticulously prepared and maintained.
Regular toolbox talks to explain and reinforce our goals; how and why we are achieving them.
Fully-briefed project members and sub-contractors.
A photographic record of all key construction details throughout the project, allowing real-time updates.
The use of Basecamp collaboration tool to share material between parties, keeping all parties right up to date.
However, if you prefer to engage EcoVert Solutions as a project manager, operating a tender for sub-contractors and managing time and quality, we will be pleased to meet your exact needs.

What is Passivhaus?
Passivhaus buildings provide a high level of occupant comfort while using very little energy for heating and cooling. They are built with meticulous attention to detail and rigorous design and construction according to principles developed by the Passivhaus Institute in Germany, and can be certified through an exacting quality assurance process.
Passivhaus buildings achieve a 75% reduction in space heating requirements, compared to standard practice for UK new build. The Passivhaus standard therefore gives a robust method to help the industry achieve the 80% carbon reductions that are set as a legislative target for the UK Government. Passivhaus also applies to retrofit projects, achieving similar savings in space heating requirements.
