Bill Dunster established ZEDfactory in 1999.
With 11 architects and a team of visualisation designers, the Zedfactory offers the full range of architectural services, from master- planning and design of large-scale ‘eco villages’ to one-off individual building commissions. 
As leaders in the field of zero-carbon design and development, we have a unique track record of delivering Zero (fossil) Energy Development (ZED) buildings in the UK.
We work closely with leading UK academics and consultants to model predicted energy consumption and production, fluid dynamics, daylighting and whole life cycle carbon costs of our designs to ensure they achieve the lowest environmental impact possible.
We are always pushing the boundaries to try to advance the construction industry's approach to low-carbon, low-impact buildings and to make the technologies and thinking more accessible to all. We have extensive experience in the design and realisation of energy efficient buildings of all types and sizes.

We believe that to combat global climate change and reduce carbon emissions we need to offer more than energy efficient buildings. Our target is a zero carbon / zero waste society capable of running off the limited supplies of renewable energy available within our national boundaries.
Bill Dunster, Principal - OBE, MA Hons(Edin), RIBA
