Choosing an architect for a high-performance home isn’t easy.
You need someone you feel is the right fit for you as your future home is at stake.
Plus, they need the technical skills to design a high-performance home (no green-wash!)
In our experience, an Expert Consultation is the best way to find these things out and to fully understand what you’re looking for.
If for some reason, we’re not the right fit, you are free to take the report to someone else for them to continue the process.
