Self Builders

According to the NaCSBA (National Custom & Self Build Association) survey 1 in 3 people are interesting in self building, with 9% of people saying that they were likely to build their own home at some point in the near future.

Driven by Covid and new emerging approaches to hybrid working, 39% also stated that they needed a dedicated home office space.  

For the majority of self-builders designing in renewable energy as an intrinsic part of the build is a pre-requisite. This often means designing ground source heat, underfloor heating, solar thermal and integrated solar panels as part of the build plan.

We have a wealth of experience in this market and if you or your architect would like to talk through the options, please get in touch.
