BUILT ENVIRONMENT

At BlackOnyx we believe that high quality architecture and sensitive design can contribute towards and enhance both the existing and emerging built environments.

We focus on assembling a design team of highly skilled individuals within their respective fields and always crown the team with a signature architect. Together we work with the architect and design team to create truly exceptional places for people to live.

This ensures the existing residents and surrounding properties are safeguarded against unsympathetic development.

SUSTAINABILITY

Efficiency and environmental responsibility are integral to all our projects. We have completed numerous developments that have been certified under the sustainability assessments: Code for Sustainable Homes and EcoHomes.

We take a fabric first approach to energy conservation, ensuring a well insulated and air-tight building to minimise the need for gas and electricity. We then use renewable technologies, such as Solar Photovoltaics (PV) to meet and surpass local planning targets on carbon emissions.

On a wider sustainability level, we consider water conservation through our specifications, use responsibly sourced materials that have a low environmental impact, minimise surface water run-off, minimise on-site waste and create sustainable healthy spaces for the occupants.
