Local materials and services for local people.

low impact

Good quality buildings don’t have to cost the earth.


All this is possible with non toxic, low embodied energy materials.


Everyone deserves to live, work and play in a warm, comfortable and healthy building.


Buildings need to be functional, but they should also feed the soul.


A building project is a huge investment. Choose quality over quantity.
