Design Review

A practical review of your building plans with Director Bill Butcher, to help guide your project team to deliver energy efficient, up to Passivhaus standard, building projects. 

Our Design Review focuses on building professionals and their clients working on domestic residential projects helping them to meet Passivhaus, EnerPHit and AECB  low energy building standards.

The Design Review session offers peer review of detailed plans and normally involves the architect and or builder, with or without the client.  Bill Butcher particularly focuses on buildability and sequencing decision making, and the designing of practical detailing.  It takes advantage of Bill’s knowledge of Passivhaus low energy building and his experience of making it work on site, along with his experience of consulting on many projects and also teaching.  We encourage key members of the project team to join the session so that they can ask their own questions.  Having key members of the team also helps to enable a team approach, which we consider critical to a successful project.

The 2-hour Design Review session is £500.00 and usually involves a meeting via Microsoft Teams, although they can be in person at our offices.

Before the review, Bill will have studied your project plans, images and critical questions. We expect this session to build common team knowledge, understanding and support for a team approach to achieve your plans.
