Kent Building Developments Ltd combines experience and specialist knowledge to produce energy efficient domestic homes and commercial buildings. We have a long held commitment to producing energy efficient buildings using the best quality products, energy efficient measures and eco house designs in all of our projects.
Two of the PassivHaus designs that we worked on in York were designed by one Architect, Phil Bixby of Constructive Individuals, there is more information on his website about how he designed them.
Whether you want to build a low-energy, sustainable home or renovate your existing property to enhance its eco credentials, you’ll need expert advice to set you on the right track.
The benefits of creating an eco-friendly and efficient home include lower fuel bills, a healthy living space and having a positive impact on the environment. But creating a sustainable home isn’t simply about introducing add-on renewable technology, it’s important to consider the fabric of your build as well.
Sustainably sourced timber, blockwork, brick and pre-fabricated systems, which are made off-site in a factory are all viable options to consider. Dense materials such as brick and concrete offer high levels of thermal mass, so that during the day they absorb and store heat while at night the heat is slowly released, keeping your home at a comfortable temperature.
