When you build with MK Building Solutions you have the option to build a passive home. If you choose this option, part of our initial process at the start is to set up a meeting with our Architectural Designer and Energy Efficiency Consultant who will work together on your design and provide you with a NatHERS energy efficiency rating for your home. We will then provide you with a budget estimate based on your concept design.
