What We Do

No-one is the best at everything. Which is why you need specialists for every part of the process. We find and match a trusted portfolio of the right suppliers to help you get your ideas out into the real world. You get detailed drawings, accurate budgets and a step by step process with no false starts. Our involvement means that you tangibly move forwards at every stage and get the best of everything in your final home. Here’s how….

Designing Your Vision

Most of the current ‘Eco’ talk concerns the efficient performance of the building, rather than considering the environmental impact of the whole life of the building from transport to dismantling. We guarantee as low impact a build as possible.

Materials Specification

Low-carbon materials are as-yet relatively inaccessible. We help you to understand your choices whilst also not being affiliated with any specific products. We will only specify the things that work and take the unknowns and risk out of using them.

Pricing and Scheduling

Initial costings are risky, even in conventional building. We maintain a database of low-carbon materials so as to cost accurately and early on in your project. This combines from the start with a clear schedule. By keeping the information live, transparent and collaborative with all parties from start to finish, we keep costs down and monitor cash reserves.

Contractor Sourcing and Management

 Contractors often have knowledge gaps with these new materials meaning a reluctance to use the ones you want. We give confidence and support, leaving no stone unturned and getting the finished article you ask for.

Education and Empowerment

Providing online courses and resources designed to make the entire process as transparent as possible and allow you to take on as many elements of the process as you wish. This saving you money and gives you autonomy and agency over your project.

The Process

Everything begins and ends with the Hartwyn Process. Think of it as a menu from which to choose services.
