At nca we understand that more and more of our Clients are looking for sustainable environments in which to live and work. Sustainability can take many forms from the use of renewable technologies to the specification of materials sourced locally.  


We are experienced in designing properties where the selection of materials,  careful detailing to minimise heat loss, use of grey water recycling and thorough use of insulation has produced significant reductions in emissions and by virtue, the carbon foot print of the buildings.

"... doing simple things

well ... good detailing, specification of local materials and generous use of insulation can deliver impressive gains more cost effectively than

bolting on renewable technologies."
