Here are just some of the elements which are a key focus for our team.

At Low Carbon we believe in working collaboratively with you to create your custom designed sustainable home. Our experienced architects and design team will guide you through every stage ensuring that create the home you dreams.

Our Process

Before we begin designing your home, we will arrange an introductory informal catch up to understand the design aspirations and answer any questions you may have. We aim to make building a simple process and we will explain the difference of building with us and how we can save you money for the life of your property.

Our Architectural team will to go through ideas and concept designs with you before the full design starts to ensure we all understand the design aspirations. We will work collaboratively with all our client to develop the home you want not just a standard layout. We will discuss your individual design brief to ensure we design the home to include your style and features.

When we have completed your design and gone through all your specifications will explain the cost and adjust the design to achieve your budgets. The next step is to prepare building contracts and the construction documentation for council approval.
Depending on the local authority, it is likely that you will require a development approval. We will engage our own Building Certification Consultants to deal with the application process and government departments to ensures a smooth and fast application process.

Once all the documents have been completed, we will begin working on your interior design. We want to provide interiors with a point of difference to make your property stand out and we will provide ideas and options for the inside and outside of your home.

When we have completed the design, which is tailored to your exact requirements, we will then submit the design for building license.

When we have received building approval, we will then commence the construction phase. The home building process will be planned and efficiently delivered using low carbon homes expertise in construction and engineering.

We will keep you updated throughout the building process and send regular progress reports.
