Non-commercial Construction to Passivhaus Standards
At SCL, we have extensive experience and success in the commercial sector. However, this expertise can be called upon for non-commercial construction projects as well. Whilst the final use of the building is different, our considered and professional approach remains the same. We maintain a close working relationship with your architect throughout the project to ensure every part of the design is delivered to a high standard.
With our in-house Plan and Build Service, we can deal with all aspects of planning approval and building control. Working closely with the owner on a regular basis, we ensure all works are carried out with the minimum of disruption to their living arrangements.
Our pedigree as a house builder ensures that we deliver buildings that work on an aesthetic level and function as a day-to-day living space. We are also incorporating innovative environmental technologies into many of our current projects by working to Passivhaus and BREEAM standards. Alongside complete new builds, our team are equally comfortable with extensive renovations with the highest level of finish.
Passive houses combine technology and a very high standard of construction to provide comfortable living accommodation that is also energy efficient. These dwellings use the sun, the occupants, household appliances and extracted air to heat the interior. This is achieved through a variety of features including high levels of insulation and exceptional air tightness.
Our forward-thinking will help your home hit the targets required to be certified as a passive house. Looking at energy demand and air tightness, we’ll carry out the work required to meet the exacting standards. The result is a beautiful home with a gold standard for energy efficiency.
