Your ideas and ambitions will be combined with our experience and know-how to design and create your home, with you.

Working with you on a bespoke basis, we help capture and develop a design which fits your aspirations, your lifestyle... and your budget.

Each home is designed around the way you live, not only in terms of look and layout but using dynamic thermal modelling to ensure your new home performs for the way you and your family live.

Translating your vision into a detailed design is a key stage on the journey of building your home; Sylva is here to support you every step of the way.


The design of your home and the way you use it directly affects your fuel bills and carbon impact. Sylva will provide advice and guidance to:

• Assess running costs and specify building performance based on your lifestyle

• Reduce thermal bridging and incorporate air tight detailing to minimise heat loss

• Offer natural materials for a healthy living environment and good air quality

• Incorporate suitable eco-technology

Building a comfortable and low energy home means you minimise heating costs and maximise carbon reduction.


The extent of our work is matched to your needs, always ensuring you maintain control of your project. A full scope would include:

• Cost assessment & budget preparation

• Setting the build programme & coordinating trades

• Building Regulations submission

• Groundworks & foundations

• Building the shell: walls, windows, floors & roof

• Making your home wind, water & airtight

• Air testing & sign-off

Sylva will provide you with the support and guidance to cut through the jargon and make sense of the many elements which go together to create your new home.

From working with Planners to considering running costs, choosing the right build method to considering eco-technology, you oversee progress, we deliver your build.
