WHO WE'VE WORKED WITH

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

"We planned an extensive renovation of our home and contacted MosArt about the possibilities of going passive and are glad we did so. From the beginning to the end of the process both in professional and personal terms the team was a pleasure to work with. They accompanied our journey from the design to the final sign-off and played a key role at each stage. First we gained an understanding and insight into what distinguished passive house design and build from more conventional methods enabling us to appreciate the potential benefits of this evidence-led scientific approach to every aspect of design, build and finish. Art McCormack of MosArt also brought the aesthetic eye of a good architect. Numerous points of detail, small in themselves, but elegant in the round complemented the science–led foundation of the build. In the end, as the saying goes, the proof of the pudding is in the eating and in our case the outcome is all that we could have hoped for - and more." MosArt made a key contribution. We are glad we found them and pleased that they worked with us in such a comprehensive, diligent and ultimately successful way.
