Our Story

Ecospheric focus on pioneering eco developments that save carbon and drive technological change. 


It's not only what excites us, but also offers valuable case studies to progress the field of sustainable construction. 


Over the last decade we have helped hundreds of home and business owners form holistic renovation plans enabling them to reduce bills and maintenance costs whilst improving the comfort and health of their internal environment. 


Today, our team and expertise has grown to include our own developments as well as support to architects and developers in delivering specialist eco projects, such as paragraph 55/79 applications and certified passive houses. 


We're also passionate about sharing our knowledge and offer a range of CPD courses, tours, and events. 


Our work in sustainable building has led us to become a supplier of energy efficient glazing. 

Ecospheric Windows and Doors can meet the needs of any complex glazing project, enabling incredible flexibility and performance for a reasonable cost.
