Understanding your design
At eTool we consider the entire carbon footprint of your new home, renovation or retrofit, taking into account every design detail and measuring it against the industry standard. By discovering more about the environmental impact of your home, we can help you make informed decisions to give you the sustainable home of your dreams without compromising on style.
Did you know that building materials make up the largest portion of your home’s carbon footprint? By measuring the impact of these materials in our software, we can help you create a sustainable, low carbon home that doesn’t have to cost the earth! Our team of experts calculate the amount of carbon in the materials and offer suitable alternatives with your goals and budget in mind.
Sustainability on budget
Our aim is to help you design and build a home with the lowest environmental impact that will give you the greatest return on investment. Whether you’re looking to lower your energy bills, want to live off the grid or building for a short to long term investment, we can help.
As well as measuring the environmental impacts of buildings, our life cycle software calculates the financial life cycle of your design. So if you want to compare how renewable energy stacks up against design features in terms of carbon or cost, we can calculate both, at the same time with no extra cost! We listen to what you want to achieve and create a bespoke assessment to suit your needs and get you the best bang for your buck…
