Agar Grove

Certify Passivhaus

Agar Grove

~350 dwellings over a number of blocks. Initially 35 flats in a single block.

The Team

  • Client - Camden Council
  • Architect - Hawkins Brown / MAE / Architype
  • Services engineer - Max Fordham
  • Main contractor - Hill Social Housing

Our Focus

The larger site at Agar poses many different problems in comparison to low rise dwellings, for example the mechanical services design becomes critical and thermal bridging can be much more significant.

As well as certifying this project we have provided training for the design teams, given initial advice on buildability and thermal performance, and are looking forward to significant site presence.
