Our Focus

The aim was to make the form as simple as possible to ensure Passivhaus was easily achievable.

We provided Passivhaus design support from concept to completion including thermal bridge modelling, airtightness training, ventilation commissioning support and user guides.

We successfully negotiated Passivhaus Certification in lieu of the 15% renewables obligation that the planning authority required.
