Owen Batchelor started a small drafting firm in 1991 working for builders. In 1997 we moved to Clayfield and founded east Coast Building Design. In 2007 we moved to Nundah to expand and grow. A combination of GFC and covid has helped us re-evaluate our business position and now Owen has gone back to working one-on-one with clients based from his home studio in Clear Mountain, while retaining the Nundah office for client meetings and as a base.
In late 2020 Owen Batchelor began studying Passive House Design (PassivHaus) and working out how it can be adapted to sub-tropical Qld. This has spurned a new business passive House Brisbane alongside his well established East Coast Building Design.
the PassivHaus standard adapts surprisingly well to every climate, including Brisbane. Fresh clean flitered cool air delivered to every room of the house while blocking out intrusive noise and neighbours combines to create a very cost effective way of living, even in warmer climates?
