TS Constructions can build an environmentally sustainable, quality home that complies with all design requirements.

TS Constructions can also create a unique design using the input and guidance of purchasers. Using a ‘Design & Construct’ (D&C) methodology, each aspect of the home is specified to meet both the requirements of the client and adhere to the guidelines of the village.
Residents may also select their own design and architect, however all housing must meet high standards of environmental performance and will be assessed and approved by a design review committee. The Ecovillage will assist residents and designers with resources and information so that the design, approvals and construction process is kept simple and is as user friendly as possible.
