From Passive House design and construction to high quality joinery finishes, we pride ourselves in creating beautiful and sustainable buildings using natural, durable and robust materials.
With over 25 years specialising in low energy, high performance buildings, our timber frame houses begin life in our house building factory, in Wales, as fully engineered, insulated and air-tight closed panels. The panelised units are then transported to site where a weather protected structure can be assembled in only a few days.
The materials in our build systems are predominantly timber based and procured locally where possible. By using Warmcel cellulose fibre insulation along with timber and woodfibre lining boards, timber I-beams, timber windows, and timber cladding, carbon is locked-in to create a sustainable building that is healthy, comfortable and enjoyable to live in.
As ever, thank your for sharing your knowledge and your expertise.
With over 25 years’ experience in the sustainable building industry, I am committed to providing quality low energy solutions for high performance buildings. I champion the growth of Passivhaus in the UK, particularly in Wales, and was a speaker at the Passivhaus Conference, 2017. I am on the board of Wood Knowledge Wales.
While I work with Jasper in running PYC, my focus is overseeing our construction projects, liaising with Francis & our team to ensure their success. I work closely with suppliers & sub-contractors to get the best quality & sustainable products. My training as a furniture maker shows in my critical eye for detail to finishes in our buildings.
