Sustainable Materials

Material choices are key in achieving true low energy buildings with low embodied carbon. Whilst remaining on the wish list for many, there are many materials available that are not only functional but also have fabulous form. Our team have experience of working with many types of materials on site from sustainably sourced timber to hemp and lime and straw bale builds, even achieving Passivhaus standards with these.
Our consultants can help in design and specification and reporting of low embodied carbon materials:

- Exterior and structural
Timber frame
Rammed earth
Chalk
Straw
Composites
Green roofs
Lime renders

- Interior finishes
Flooring
Fabrics and paints

- Recycled material choices
Glass
