As a prominent member of the Passivhaus Trust, the Association of Environment Conscious Building (AECB), and the Good Homes Alliance, Beattie Passive has been at the forefront of sustainable and energy efficient design for over a decade. Over the past 10 years, the firm has built almost 500 properties to the passive house standard using its proprietary, patented and passive house certified build system.

The company said Clarke’s appointment underscores Beattie Passive’s continued commitment to delivering innovative solutions for its self-build and custom-build clients, and that his experience and expertise make him a valuable addition to the Beattie Passive team. An experienced project manager, Simon is poised to lead the company’s self-build division to new heights.

Simon expressed his enthusiasm for the role: “I am thrilled to join Beattie Passive and head up the self-build division,” he said. “This company’s commitment to sustainable construction aligns perfectly with my own passion for eco-friendly building practices. Beattie Passive has a strong track record of passive house projects and I’m eager to contribute to the company’s continued growth and development in the selfbuild market.”

New bid manager

Meanwhile, the company has appointed Graeme Robson to the newly created role of bid manager. This strategic appointment follows the firm’s recent success in securing positions on three major offsite construction frameworks, including a Crown Commercial Service offsite construction solutions framework for residential and energy upgrades, The Offsite Homes Alliance (OSHA) National Modular Construction Framework, and the LHC Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) of New Homes (NH3) Framework.

Graeme will be responsible for writing pre-qualification questionnaires and tenders for public sector new build and retrofit projects. “I’ve worked as a bid writer for over twenty years, primarily in facilities management, but more recently in groundworks,” said Graeme. “I have a keen interest in sustainability, so I’m looking forward to working for a company that promotes sustainable building practices. Beattie Passive ticks all the boxes for public sector procurement, so that certainly makes my job a little bit easier,” he added.

Ron Beattie, founder and managing director of Beattie Passive, said: “Bids play a key role in our business development and we have a very strong proposition in terms of energy efficiency, sustainability and social value. I’m absolutely delighted that we’ve appointed someone of Graeme’s calibre to provide in-house bid support as we look to build on the success of our award-winning, net zero-rated passive house projects.”
