Maria is a Sustainable Building Consultant
specialising in providing advice on fitting eco measures on existing and new homes. This may involve the rearrangement of internal space to
take advantage of sunlight to naturally heat and light the home. Her philosophy is to improve insulation and reduce draughts to reduce fuel bills and
carbon dioxide emissions before adding renewable technologies. She works with
architects and housing associations advising on how to reach high levels
of the code for sustainable homes and writes sustainability and energy statements to support planning applications.
Maria has a MSc in sustainable architecture from The Centre for
Technology and over 15 years experience in building design and renovation.
She is a qualified energy assessor and user of software to aid building to
passive house standards. Passive houses hardly need any heating and you
don't get cold! Maria is able to recommend suppliers who can implement her
recommendations effectively and she has comprehensive knowledge of the
performance of renewable technologies. Contact her on firstname.lastname@example.org
