What We Do – Design & Build
The homes we design are based on the principals of passivhaus and so we can provide a complete turnkey solution to ensure that the efficiency that your home has been designed to is met.
Too often a specification change will be made with the builders and clients not realising the implications that change may have on the efficiency of your home. Windows may be installed using foam or sealant rather than the membranes and air tightness systems that have been designed to last the lifetime of your home or a cheaper less efficient insulation may be installed.
We want to ensure that the home you imagined is the one you get.
Evolved Design can supply all the necessary elements of the build construction to meet all specification needs, by carefully arranging with strategic partners the supply all the elements, including the procurement of the timber frames, Smart Wall Systems, the Insulation materials, and the Doors and Windows packages to meet the design and specification required.
Different construction methods can be used to provide alternatives to both the finishes and the product specification requirements.
The groups of construction are:
- Timber Frame Cavity systems – Utilising a timber frame designed to achieve the thermal performance required. This can be done by using either a solid timber stud, and engineered I beam construction or by using a twin frame system which minimises thermal bridging in the frame. We discuss with you what the best option for your project is.
- Solid External Wall construction – Smart Wall construction offers excellent thermal performance and thermal mass from a single layer of blockwork and this can be further improved by adding an extra layer of external wall insulation to give improved insulation results.
- SIP Structural Insulated Panels manufactured using two skins of structural boards with a petrochemical building insulation which acts as a bonding layer to the structure creating a continuous layer of insulation.
- Hanse Haus complete turnkey solution.
Please see details of our Carbon System Wall Systems as some of the options that we can provide.
