Sustainable Design

Sustainable design has always been of considerable importance to us at @rchitects Scotland Ltd . Our aim is to seek the best solution for your project that balances your environmental concerns with aesthetics, comfort and functionality by creating healthy buildings through the combination of high quality architectural / design solutions with sustainable building materials and the use of appropriate technology.

We endeavor to incorporate an appropriate level of sustainability into all our designs. This helps provide a finished building, which sits comfortably in the landscape. We can advise on energy efficiency, low energy design and sustainability taking into account your needs and the site, appropriate renewable energy solutions. We are experienced in developing designs and building systems for low energy passive houses where the insulation levels and air-tightness are so high that a conventional heating system is not required.

@rchitects Scotland Ltd is a member of the Association for Environment Conscious Building (AECB) and the Scottish Ecological Design Association (SEDA). Our Director Paul Fretwell received the Professor James Paul Award for Environmental Architecture, 2000 and was previously a director and vice chairman of the Scottish Ecological Design Association (SEDA).
