Project Description

We are on site with a 6 bedroom new-build Passivhaus. Partly built into a hill, the house has an upside-down design with a large open plan kitchen, living and dining room on the upper floor and all bedrooms on the lower floor. The site has incredible views over the Surrey hills. We were awarded the job due to our considerable experience building Passivhaus and our attention to detail.

We have since contributed to re-designing the M&E systems to reduce costs and optimise installation. On this project we pioneered the use of a 3D model of the steel structure which we created in-house and then shared with the architect, engineer and M&E designer. A setting out engineer used this model to mark the locations of anchors for the steel structure which enable swift efficient installation.

“Rafael was involved from the beginning and contributed useful ideas and suggestions throughout the project.”

“We’re expecting a dramatic reduction in costs. We now know how much energy we’ve used (in March) and we rarely have the heating on compared to this time last year in our old house.”

– Toni M

“All the onsite employees were polite and meticulously tidy, doing their very best to fit in around us.”

– Raza R

“I have enormous respect for Bow Tie as a contractor: It’s a real pleasure not having constant battles and headaches from a builder trying to do the bare minimum.”

– Justin Bere

“We found Rafael polite and enthusiastic, and very quick to grasp what we wanted from the build – he has great communication skills.”

– Donald & Tania S
