We've received a number of enquiries from people who are looking for help with their own projects and we're thinking of ways in which we can offer that help.

If you have a project you'd like to discuss please let us know what stage of concept or design you're at, when you hope to start build, and where your house will be built.

Shay (ZEH owner) and Matt (ZEH communication) recently launched Evident Connect, a business focused on giving people control over the performance of their homes.

Evident Connect supports clients and design teams across all stages of a project to achieve personalised performance targets related to comfort, running costs and environmental impact.

Evident Connect and the Zero Energy House are closely linked. Their services are based on lessons learned from the ZEH project, enquiries through the ZEH website go to Shay's desk at Evident Connect, and they will be sending out the remaining updates on the ZEH project.
