We think, plan and build with the environment in mind. It’s an integral part of our building design and construction – inside and out.
For energy efficiency we construct our buildings from UK-sourced Structural Insulated Panels to reduce their carbon footprint. SIPs offer many benefits for the environment:
fewer trees from mature forests needs to be harvested
The outer OSB skins are instead made from engineered wood that is manufactured from renewable, fast growing trees
SIPs offer superior insulation qualities
Heating and electricity bills are reduced and as a result fewer fossil fuels need to be burned
Meanwhile outside we offer sustainable western red cedar cladding, which naturally secretes its own weatherproof resin, thereby avoiding the need for chemical preservatives.
Glazing is designed to be heat retaining and energy-saving.
On the roof there’s the choice of eco-friendly single ply membrane (EPDM) or living sedum and the eco-smart features don’t end there. Solutions for harvesting rainwater, capturing daylight with the aid of reflective tubes, and generating renewable solar and wind-powered energy are also available.
The Qube Assembled range is re-locatable, so our solutions avoid the unnecessary use of natural resources, resulting manufacturing processes and landfill wastage.
