How to Find a eco / sustainable building design professional

Hiring a tradesman for eco/ sustainable building design

Eco-friendly and sustainable building design is a specialist service, with professionals offering an intricate knowledge of the options, materials and planning permissions involved. You will need a professional that you can trust and communicate well with, and finding one just got a lot easier with Plentific. The Plentific website offers a service allowing users to generate lists of the best tradesmen in their local area offering the services they specifically need, along with access to customer reviews to help them compare their options.

What do you need to know about eco/ sustainable building design?

Eco-friendly and sustainable building design is becoming a more common practice as people become increasingly aware of how properties impact the environment. Building designers and architects may well specialise in this kind of design work, and as such will have multiple options for you to consider. Do you want solar panels installed? Do you want your home designed with sustainable or recycled materials? Is there a way you can use the surrounding area to your advantage without damaging it? Remember that certain eco-friendly solutions can be more expensive, so do some research yourself and speak with several tradesmen before making a hire. Also consider whether you want your designer to oversee the project once it begins, as a specialist will likely have tradesmen they can recommend for the job.

Designing is not a simple process, so do not expect to get free mock-ups before making your hire. However, most professional building designers and architects will have examples of previous jobs that you can look over, as well as readily available customer feedback. The cost of eco-friendly or sustainable building design work will depend on the size and complexity of your project. Remember to make sure that your final choice is covered with professional indemnity or liability insurance, in case flaws in their designs cause problems later on.

We engaged Eli to provide drawings for our 2 story side extension on a 1930s end of terrace in a very small conservation area. From the first phone call, Eli was professional throughout and provided the right level of detail to us to get the project moving. Through various delays (no fault of 4Ds), Eli was extremely patient and professional. I would highly recommend using 4D for any sort of planning applications that carry uncertainty or some level of risk, as Eli was able to formulate the right strategy for us and execute this - above and beyond just delivering good quality drawings and service.

Jason has been brilliant. Thanks to him, we now have planning permission for our refurbishment project. We wish to continue with him and have asked him to produce the Building Control drawings. We would definitely recommend Jason.

We employed LT's services to draw up plans for our 2 storey extension, and to take it through the planning application process. Jason initially visited our house to meet with us, and establish what we were looking to do. He then went away and provided us with a first revision of the plans within a very short time delay. After a few rounds of feedback from our part, we were able to get the plans exactly how we wanted them on the 4th revision. After this, Jason dealt with the whole application process, until we received planning approval from the council. The most important thing for me was that Jason was efficient and always easy to get hold of (by email or phone), and he also chased the planning officer tirelessly to try and speed up the application process for us. Nothing was ever too much trouble. We were very pleased with the service and the outcome, and can thoroughly recommend using his services to deal with the planning application process. Thanks!
