Warm is an independent consultancy with the theoretical and practical understanding to bring pioneering low energy buildings from design to reality.
Our vision is that the buildings we help design will still be comfortable, practical and very low energy places to live in 50 years’ time. We strongly believe in educating and sharing knowledge with everyone we work with. This is reflected in our Passivhaus training packages delivered by our sister organisation Coaction CIC, but also in the way we approach our projects.
We’re always on the lookout for like-minded people to work with. If you’d like to join our team, please email your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Director MEng CEng MIMechE PH Certifier & Coaction Trainer
Sally is a Chartered Mechanical Engineer, Passivhaus Certifier, a member of the UK Technical Panel reporting to the Passivhaus Institut, and is responsible for overseeing our Coaction Passivhaus Training.
After starting a career in building services she decided it was far too easy going, so set up WARM with her Dad Peter, with the intention of channeling his invaluable knowledge of low-energy construction, direct into the industry.
She has vast experience in the design and construction of larger low energy residential and commercial buildings, as well as building services.
Sally lives in her self-build Certified Passivhaus home and has completed her own Stepwise EnerPHit of a café and holiday home; this practical experience has given her first-hand insight into the reality of construction projects.
