Green Building

Green Building has come such a long way in the last few years!  Going green is clearly good for the environment.  The benefits to you, the home owner, are now more obvious than ever.

Sustainable energy from wind turbines or photovoltaic panels will save (or even generate) money, highly efficient insulation means you will use less energy, ground source heating systems mean you can heat your house more, only it will cost less.  You could even generate your own energy to put into your electric car.

Smart home automation

The possibilities seem to be endless!  There is a large choice of [fun] home automation products out there.  Building them into your design at the outset will create the increase that you might think.

Be in control

Use your smart phone to check that you locked the house, use geo location to turn the heating on when you’re near home or to divert your calls to your mobile when you leave home.  Use your voice to change the colour of your lights or just to turn them off.  These are just some of the things that we can factor in to your project.

Our technology partner, AliveIT LTD, provides installation and support services for all home automation systems.

Additional Construction Steps

We will work with all project team members to define the logistical requirements for the construction process, considering all site access limitations.  For example, areas for deliveries, placement of barricades (if required) and hours of operation.  The last thing you want is to upset your neighbours or delay the project because parking was not pre-arranged or a delivery truck could not offload.

Shop Drawings and Submittals

Neason will work with you from concept to completion if required; therefore providing drawings for outline planning permission.  However, you may already have everything planned out with drawings and planning permission in place; in which case we work with what you have, offering our advice along the way.

Cost Reporting

If you agree to work with us your quotation will be broken down so that you can see exactly where all your funds are being spent.  During the project your project manager will be able to demonstrate that we are on track and that costs are being managed correctly.

Final Inspections and Sign-off

The project only ends when building control have signed off the work, quality control have checked the final finish and operation and, most importantly, that you the customer are entirely satisfied with your new development.

Lighting

It seems like a gift that we now have LED lighting.  Almost too good to be true!  To run LED lights costs around 10% of the old fashioned bulbs so it is a very easy decision to make the switch, completing the transition to your green building.

Neason electrical contractors have a vast choice of LED light fittings to match the scale and style of any construction project so choose the best, and you will still save.

Heating

Biomass heating, Ground source heat pumps, Air source heat pumps, Solar water heating, Thermal stores…  These are not just a compromise, these systems generate amazing heat while being sustainable and help you to save.
