Quality craftmanship


High performance builds

At our core we are a main contractor, built upon working with a network of specialists to manage and deliver high quality construction projects. However just because things have always been done a certain way does not always mean that it is the best solution for every project. By adopting a whole-building approach to our projects with clear, measured targets, focused on high-quality construction, certified through an exacting quality assurance process.

Within the preconstruction phase we have made a conscious decision to adopt sustainable practices and use Passive House principles within our design process. This not only benefits the environment, but also is an investment in your future. Whether it is a new build or a retrofit of an existing property, we will provide you with a finish project that is not only visually appealing but also energy efficient for years to come.


"The most sustainable energy is the one not used" Anton Dobrevski

Part of our design process involves site specific modelling of your project by carrying out significant calculations to ensure that the build will perform as the design intended. Once we've established these principles within the preconstruction and you budget. Then we can look at factoring in the Net Zero Embodied Carbon by considering material choices and finishes, to achieve sustainability throughout the construction phase. 



To deliver the complete package Fourthwright have recruited an Electrical and Mechanical designer so that we can integrate these services into the design without compromising the building envelope. Our designer is focused on the future, offering the latest in smart home capabilities where your home is not only seamlessly controlled with your current technology but systems that are intelligent enough to make your home more efficient.

We are always expanding our knowledge and exploring different techniques and better methods to construct more efficient buildings. The layout, programming, budget, design and material constraints all need to be factored in when deciding on what is the best approach for your build and we can share our experience to ensure that you get the best solution.


Whether you are looking for a full passive house design and build, an energy efficient renovation, an addition to your home or even someone you can rely on to manage and deliver your architect designed project...
