Taking a greener approach to new-builds and extensions.
Have you ever thought about building your new property of extension more eco-friendly – or maybe using methods and materials that are kinder to your health?
We have been involved in many projects where the clients did have this idea – they just didn’t have the information and knowledge on how to make this happen.
Here, At Eco-Renovation UK, our team of experienced professionals combine thoughtful design with environmentally-friendly, non-toxic materials and eco-building techniques to produce homes that are as ecologically sound as they are beautiful looking.
Why not leave us a short message about your project, and we’ll give you all our knowledge to find a good and nice way to build it!
OUR FAVORITE BUILDING TECHNIQUES:
HEMPCRETE with TIMBER FRAME
Hempcrete is certainly one of the most sustainable construcion method. By mixing the hemp shiv with water and lime binder, we can create a beautiful looking wall and roof, which can be lime plastered internally, rendered , cladded or having facing brick externally.
The structure is fully breathable, it retains heat, regulates moisture and give an undoubtably natural feel to live in. Have you ever thought about that your walls can be built of a plant?
Can you imagine how natural, sustainable and healthy it is?
TIMBER FRAME BUILDING WITH CELLULOSE INFILL
Building with timber frame is way more sustainale than using an average brick-and-block constructions. When filled with cellulose insulation, it not only will help you to get rid of high-carbon and unhealthy poystyrene insulations, but it will protect you against summer overheating as well!
Cellulose is made of used newspaper, which is ‘fluffed up’ and soaked in natural boron salts to make the insulation fireproof.
Did you know, that the timber frame – cellulose combo is widely used in Europe and with it houses can be easily built to any low energy standards, even passive house standard?
SCREW PILE FOUNDATIONS
Installing screw piles for foundations instead of concrete strips is a brilliant method to reduce the environmental impact.
No digging required for long trenches, no more hard work to skip all those soil.
And as labour is reduced, it is very cost effective as well, especially in clay soiled areas where sometimes extreme amount of concrete is to be poured in.
