Adams:Scott is a low energy building design and construction consultancy with a collaborative approach.

We work with architects, developers and self builders to design and construct very low energy and comfortable buildings.

Having grown up working with family in the building trade, construction has become second nature. After restoring an 18th century cottage I questioned whether there was a better way of carrying out this sort of work. The moment of clarity occurred upon the discovery of Passivhaus and its approach towards new build and retrofit with accurate and measured results.

The Passivhaus standard is the worlds premium building standard formed around the basic principles of physics. Through meticulous attention to detail Passivhaus dwellings are free from thermal bridges, super-insulated, airtight and use mechanical ventilation to maintain excellent indoor air quality. Oh and they are extremely comfortable places to be, no draughts, no cold spots, no expensive bills and don’t have to cost the earth to build!

Scott is a certified European Passivhaus Consultant and is currently studying a Masters in Energy and Sustainable Building Design.
