What do you enjoy about helping clients?
I like helping clients achieve the required energy rating on complicated houses and renovations, so they can build the house they want without major changes.
Why do you care about energy ratings?
I care about doing high quality energy ratings for buildings as as it can be a minefield to the inexperienced person. I care about clients and guiding them through the process, whilst educating them on the benefits of the scheme for not only the environment, but for the occupants’ cost of savings and comfort.
One tip you’d give on building sustainability
