Private Housing

The majority of our projects fall into the category of private housing. Either as extensions to existing dwellings or construction of new bespoke houses. A growth area of recent years has been ‘Eco’ houses and Passivhaus, in particular. These highly insulated, low air change structures are very economical to run and require close attention to detail during the design phase. Typical services for this type of project includes structural design, detailing and SER certification, private external drainage design and detailing and ground investigation.
