The Witchcliffe Ecovillage Design Team has put together a list of recommendations for service suppliers, namely builders and designers, to make life easier for residents starting their building journey. However, this list is not exhaustive nor does it preclude you from choosing other consultants as long as they conform to the Building Design Guidelines. 

What is an Ecovillage preferred supplier?

Our preferred suppliers are companies and individuals with whom the Ecovillage team has fostered a good working relationship. Some are longstanding, trusted partners and others are new relationships with providers who are keen supporters of the Ecovillage. All are aligned with our values and produce quality work that we can recommend. To be listed on our preferred supplier list, a builder or designer must first:

  • have read and understood the Ecovillage Sustainable Building Design Guidelines and Local Development Plans (available on the Document Library)

  • be able to show a previous body of work in sustainable building or design

  • have a client who is building at the Ecovillage and go through the design review process with us, and through that interaction give us confidence in your abilities and values

While we are tacitly recommending these service suppliers by listing them here on our website for the benefit of our buyers, Sustainable Settlements is not allied with any provider, receives no commission or benefits, nor does it provide any guarantee of workmanship or service. Ecovillage buyers who wish to make an enquiry or engage with any of the listed suppliers must do so directly (not through Sustainable Settlements).
