We are on site with a 6 bedroom new-build Passivhaus. Partly built into a hill, the house has an upside-down design with a large open plan kitchen, living and dining room on the upper floor and all bedrooms on the lower floor. The site has incredible views over the Surrey hills. We were awarded the job due to our considerable experience building Passivhaus and our attention to detail.
We have since contributed to re-designing the M&E systems to reduce costs and optimise installation. On this project we pioneered the use of a 3D model of the steel structure which we created in-house and then shared with the architect, engineer and M&E designer. A setting out engineer used this model to mark the locations of anchors for the steel structure which enable swift efficient installation.
After 5 years of living here we are moving to the country and it breaks my heart to leave the beautiful house that you created for us. I wanted to say thanks again for the beautiful work that you did on our building - it’s been amazing to live in and you guys did a first class job. Would always recommend you if someone asked for an excellent contractor.

“Bow Tie Construction were very professional, they did things to a very high standard and paid a lot of attention to detail. When small issues were flagged here or there they were always keen to investigate and fix them.”

“We’re expecting a dramatic reduction in costs. We now know how much energy we’ve used (in March) and we rarely have the heating on compared to this time last year in our old house.”

Your guys did a very good job on the [window] installation, nice and precise and the assemblies fitted perfectly....Very good silicon application too, with a nice 5mm joint. So please do thank them on behalf of Cristina and myself. We are very pleased.
