He quickly combined sustainability and construction by focusing his learning on eco-friendly materials and autonomous houses. He moved to Canada in 2016 and worked for a Passive House builder before starting his ambitious adventure with Thomas and Horizon Eco Builders
Thomas started his journey towards sustainable building while working in commercial carpentry in 2015 and realizing how much material wastage was the norm in the industry. He began immersing himself in alternative building methods, and started working for a high efficiency/Passive House builder based in Vancouver, Canada. It was with this company that he learned not to accept the status-quo in the building industry, but to constantly strive for more efficient and better solutions to common problems.
