Penny Randell has been appointed as a director of Ecological Building Systems UK Ltd.
Randell was invited to join the board of directors after six years with the company, which under her management has progressed from being based in her home to its current location near Carlisle in Cumbria with a team of staff, offices and extensive warehousing for its products.
Ecological Building Systems is renowned for its research into sourcing products throughout Europe that help create diffusion open, healthy buildings. The company was established in Ireland in 2000 and the UK Company was established in 2006. It is now the sole agents in the UK and Ireland for a host of products, which include: pro clima airtight and windtight products, Gutex wood fibreboards, Calsitherm Climate board, Thermo-Hemp & Thermo-Jute Insulation, Diasen thermal cork plasters and Elka structural boards.
The company’s products have been used in numerous high profile low energy and passive house builds throughout the UK as well as in mainstream building. As well as supplying products, the company offers significant technical input into projects and Randell has ambitious plans in the future to develop a Cumbrian hub of ecological building excellence where builders and home owners can upskill in both insulation refurbishment and achieving airtightness in buildings.
Randell said: “I am delighted to become a director. I joined the company to develop the UK market in 2009 and we’ve seen significant growth over the last 6 years which has culminated in developing a team and facilities here in Cumbria. The whole team has been pivotal to our success and we are looking forward to further expansion and growth in the future as the market expands for low energy, sustainable building.”
