Ron Beattie, Innovator of Beattie Passive
Ron is both an architectural designer and practical builder. His combined knowledge and expertise ensures he has a clear understanding of all the processes involved from conceptual design to practical application. Ron's passion and understanding of all sectors has led to the development of a practical and achievable building system that can be delivered with semi-skilled labour on and offsite and delivers affordable, energy efficient housing. Passive provides design, certification and a training academy to self-builders, architects, housing associations and developers across the UK and Europe and is the first company in the UK to be awarded certification as a complete build system by the Passivhaus Institute in Germany. He has recently launched the retrofit system – the TCosyTM, which redevelops existing housing stock to near zero carbon, eradicates fuel poverty and regenerates communities.
