Fabric First – The Comfortable Self Build Solution

Two Houses with Award Logos

Whether you are building mansion or a cottage, energy efficiency and low impact – both financially and environmentally – are key considerations.

As the price of energy – renewable or otherwise – continues to rise, the performance of the building shell becomes more critical for controlling the running costs of your future home.

Fabric First. Correct specification of the building fabric today will minimise future costs, particularly as the source of energy remains uncertain.   A materials’ specification to Passivhaus or Zero energy standards is not just cost effective, it will give comfort and long term security in coming to terms with Climate Change.

Heating homes with gas and other fossil fuels is due to be phased out in just four years’ time and the heating alternatives remain unclear – and expensive.

Adopting the Fabric First approach in specifying the project is a decision that will minimise heating costs – permanently, and provide a wider range of options for heating (and cooling!) when the energy infrastructure becomes more certain. If designing to be energy self-sufficient, Fabric First must be the primary consideration.

BecoWallform is Passivhaus proven for over twenty years, ever more popular and cost effective as a Self Build solution for performance today, and still as good in 2050!

Manufactured in the UK for reliable supply, the Wallform system uses local resources to build comfortable, high performance homes. Built for the future in terms of comfort, performance and long term sustainability, a Wallform home is an economic decision – a wise investment in times of a troubled Climate.
