We have extensive knowledge regarding energy efficient design techniques and specialise in the sustainable design reducing your buildings costly reliance on energy.
Inspired by architecture from an early age, Huw chose to study an undergraduate in architectural engineering at Cardiff University to obtain the grounding that the engineering component provides. The ethos of the course was to combine the challenges and inventiveness of a modern building industry with a flair for originality and creativity. As an architectural engineering graduate, mastering in Architecture: Advanced Environmental & Energy Studies, Huw developed skills through practical hands on work and design experience. During placement with Mark Orme Architects Huw worked within a small design team contributing to a varied and extensive portfolio of sustainable timber frame projects. In the growing climate of increased environmental awareness, he developed an extensive portfolio specialising in sustainable design.
