We carefully choose the most appropriate materials bearing in mind the embodied carbon of products and the working life of each material. We tend to use materials with low carbon footprints. These materials are often natural materials where possible. The end product is a building with little or no VOCs which leads to a more hospitable environment to live in with a superior indoor air quality.
Many of the materials we use can act as carbon sinks. Lime mortar, hemp lime plaster, cork lime plaster and any lime-based product absorb carbon dioxide in the curing process. Timber frame structures, wood-based insulations, cellulose insulation all act as carbon stores. These materials should be considered in all future buildings as a more viable alternative where possible to building products with a high level of embodied carbon such as concrete, steel and some modern insulation materials.
