Mike Webb, eco friendly landlord and developer

Mike says: “My service/ product is Property Development. However since 2010 I have been an MCS accredited installer of Solar PV and ASHPs. Since 2006 I have been an Eco Friendly Private sector landlord.

I am the MD of Seaton Beach Developments Ltd, we are building a block of 8 seafront luxury apartments with the services of Tomas Gartner at Gale & Snowden Architects. This RIBA practise design all the Passivhaus certified buildings for Exeter City Council (ECC) and are now designing the “3rd in the world” Passivhaus certified Swimming Pool building for ECC. We are following their lead and we will build our project to be certified too. We are finalising the tender drawings as we speak.

Our website tells you more on this project, the DAS attached gives you the storey so far, note the planning was obtained by a different RIBA practise.

I joined the AECB for the knowledge pool & was recommended to do so by Nick Grant of Elemental solutions.”

Herlig Ltd, Worchestershire

Vanessa says: “We are a friendly, open-minded team of architects whose work is inspired by people, context and the joy a good building can bring. Working with a passion for sustainability we co-create useful places, taking every opportunity to add beauty along the way. Our experience delivering schools and commercial and residential projects is extensive and we take pride in listening and collaborating with clients and the project team. We also have a heart for the City of Worcester and dedicate time to community building schemes such as public pavilions and sculptures. Whatever the project – massive or modest, bold or sensitive – we answer a brief without ever losing sight of the practical, budgetary or commercial demands – oh yes, and the creation of an appropriately stunning building. Having worked for companies who have been members of the AECB we have seen first hand the benefits a membership such as this can bring to working relationships and professional development.”

Adam Dadeby, Devon

Adam says: “My focus is Passivhaus (I’m a certified Passivhaus consultant) and MVHR ventilation.  I will be setting up a new company in the coming months.”

Zaki Mahfoud, Hampshire

Zaki says: “I am currently working in the domestic energy efficiency and fuel poverty sector, with the Environment Centre in Southampton. I support and advise residents of Southampton and Hampshire to improve the energy efficiency and indoor environment of their homes. My interest in the AECB comes out of a desire to expand my professional knowledge, and from a personal interest in building or renovating a home of my own in the future. I have recently enrolled on the CarbonLite Retrofit Training course, through which I am looking be able to better engage with residents and other building efficiency professionals to carry out quality retrofits.  I heard about the AECB through a book on Natural Building, loaned from the local library. It fed my interest around what can be done to improve building efficiency and indoor air quality while being environmentally responsible in the materials and techniques used. I am keen to engage with other AECB members, on building energy efficiency and wider themes of sustainable lifestyles.”
