Process

Bright Green Futures process

Bright Green Futures purchases land or enters partnership agreements with land owners and develops a masterplan for proposed sites. The masterplan contains a mixture of different sized homes and plots, as well as outstanding sustainability and community features.

Bright Green Futures sells three things:

  1. Building plots for building your own sustainable home plus support (self-build).
  2. Semi-completed homes together with support (self-finish)
  3. Homes bought off-plan with design input (custom build)

By doing this we help to create sustainable communities.

The support provided by Bright Green Futures includes:

  • legal contracts specific to the site and the group
  • initial architectural advice
  • a site-specific booklet which provides advice on general building, sustainable construction and recommends local trade and building material suppliers
  • bulk purchase organisation and price negotiation where self-builders want to take advantage of reduced prices when buying larger quantities together
  • one to one sessions to discuss your build with an experienced self-builder and sustainable construction expert
  • setting up of a community organisation which will continue to support the smooth operation of the community once construction is completed
  • organisation and facilitation of a number of workshops for the group.

Bright Green Futures makes the dream of living in a modern sustainable community a reality. This is achieved by bringing together people who share the vision of living in a dream home as part of a dynamic and value-driven community.
