About Us - About Us

By joining Éasca, members are expected to commit, where applicable, to:

  • Build today without compromising the needs of tomorrow.
  • Achieve best practice standards in their own field.
  • Aspire to provide for products/services/building works to be carbon neutral or zero carbon and zero waste.
  • Ensure high levels of energy efficiency are incorporated into all works and in particular:

All building, where possible, should follow the principle of low impact and high performance design, improving the efficiency of the whole building and minimising energy loss through high levels of thermal insulation, following bio-climatic principles of solar orientation and compactness in order to gain a useful percentage of passive solar heating contribution, efficient electrical appliances and maximising day lighting and the use of active renewable energy where appropriate.
