We have seven dedicated build teams supported by our project management and administration staff.

He is proud to specialise in low energy, sustainable housing, and in bringing innovation, imagination and technical excellence to your dream home. He is an insulation and Passive House specialist and heads up our R&D projects.
Magda has held the financial fort since she joined BTC in 2011 as a graduate of finance accountancy. Her role from basic bookkeeping and reconciling payments has advanced strategizing for company growth. She is happy being part of a company that makes a positive contribution to the environment. She enjoys swimming and conquering her fears.
One of our most experienced builders, Slawek is also a certified Icynene insulation spray foam installer. His projects have ranged in value from £400k – £3.6M. He is excellent at motivating his team who always have a can-do attitude. He comes from a long lineage of butchers and is our in-house sausage sommelier and christmas party DJ.
Joining us a builder in 2014, Damian has risen through the ranks and is now one of our most trusted and experienced site managers. He has excellent knowledge of construction skills and knows how to achieve a fine finish. He led the team at the RIBA and SECBE nominated Max Fordham House. He holds GNVQ level 3 in construction site management.
Aggie, who is an Assistant Project Manager, will be supporting both the Site and Project Manager during the project. She obtained all the quotations in the tender stage and would be working in stage two of the tender in gathering quotes and specifications. She previously worked as a buyer across various industry categories for over eight years, covering multiple products and services. Her buying experience/skills will be used to source materials and services at the best possible price and to maintain a good relationship with contractors and suppliers.
With a degree in Architecture from India, Vandana has delivered many UK residential architecture projects to RIBA Stage 6 as well as projects in the renewable energy sector. She is passionate about design and build of green housing that helps reduce our CO2 footprint.

These help to preserve the environment and improve people’s lives from diverse backgrounds anywhere in the world. Leire enjoys travelling, trekking and cooking Mediterranean food.
Ludo’s dedication to low-energy living is embodied by his choice to completely forgo clothing in place of natural insulation. The radiant heat he produces helps to lower the heat energy consumption of our office. Ludo is passionate about dog treats, doing tricks and in his spare time analyses the works of Jung and Nietzsche. He is our in-house mindfulness meditation specialist.

“I did get the benefit of regular updates and involvement in the project so I could see the quality of the work.”
“Rafael Delimata project managed an extension and new kitchen to our Victorian house in 2010. (…) We found him polite and enthusiastic, and very quick to grasp what we wanted from the build – he has great communication skills. He was involved from the beginning and contributed useful ideas and suggestions throughout the project. He is particularly knowledgeable about green issues and we now have a kitchen/breakfast room which is easy and cheap to heat in the winter and cool in the summer. Our previous experiences with builders have not been good – we are demanding clients with backgrounds in interior design, so we are probably not the easiest of customers, but we would have no hesitation in working with Rafael Delimata again and would recommend him to others.”
“Rafael was not only a competent builder but was fully involved in a complete refurbishment job from conception to realisation.”
“Hi all, just wanted to say, we are really impressed with your team in Bounds Green, they are doing such a brilliant job, and are a credit to your company.”
“My projects with Bow Tie are the only ones where I’ve left the contractor to follow my airtightness details and the projects have passed the 1st airtightness test.”
