As qualified BBE (Building Biology and Ecology) practitioners we take a holistic approach to the whole building process and encourage sound environmental practices. These range from utilising passive solar design and energy efficiency to encouraging the use of sustainable materials and natural non toxic finishes. We also aim to reduce site impact and recycle material waste during construction.
Licensed builders Michael Beck, son Jamie and Brent Knight form the core of the building team, employing other skilled builders when necessary. With Antoinette on board as an interior designer we offer our clients the full package and take care of all the hard work for you.
