Case Study

Bright Build completed this large, 390m2 home in Seatoun, during 2016/17.  It’s one of Craig’s favourite builds – not just because it’s his home and office – but because of the high specification building technology that it contains.  The home is based off Passive House principles, meaning it’s warmer in winter, cooler in summer and takes minimal (if any) energy to heat.  Solar panels, ventilation system, structured insulated panel walls (SIPs) make this home a pleasure to work and live in. READ MORE

I’m not sure I can thank you enough for what you brought to the building of my house. (Well, carrying it all up the hill is a big one!). I really appreciated your patience and consideration for me and I also admired that the same care was extended to your crew. You created a calm and peaceful environment and it was a pleasure to be a part of it. Looking around me I see many examples of your generous help and knowledgeable opinions. My home is a better place because you were on the job.
