     Headline Quotes
Transforming social housing into energy efficient smart homes “We have received many positive comments from the tenants of our retrofitted properties who are already enjoying a warmer, healthier Passivhaus living environment as well as reduced energy bills.”
Ron Beattie, of Beattie Passive

Modified wood product aims to save hardwood forests from the axe “3Wood makes the harvesting of native forests, unnecessary. We are aiming to replace all applications where today hardwood would be used if it were available – furniture, floors, frames and there are other possibilities – it is endless.” 3Wood is made from a complete log – includes wastewood.
3RT managing director Peter Torreele

The first Habitat House property "A contextual approach to materials and form and a stimulating and inspiring quality of spaces. These combined with the beautiful landscape and wildlife of Lower Mill Estate offers a distinctive and alternative architecture quite literally at one with nature."
Sarah Feathersone of Featherstone Young
