______ Our Certified Passivhaus Consultancy service provides project design teams with support from concept through to completion ensuring that a development achieves Passivhaus Certification in a cost-effective and efficient way.
With the impact of the climate and fuel crisis becoming ever more evident in our everyday lives, the need to design our homes and buildings to minimise energy demand has never been more pertinent. It is for this reason that we are seeing increased demand for developments seeking to achieve the international Passivhaus standard.
Developed in Germany in the 1990s, Passivhaus (to use its German name), is a quality assured standard and methodology for achieving low energy building design, which creates comfortable buildings, that use around 75% less energy than standard practice for UK new-build homes. The standard consists of super insulation, stringent levels of air tightness, minimal thermal bridging, optimised solar gain, mechanical ventilation with heat recovery and an efficient building form.
Support is provided by our experienced team of qualified Certified Passivhaus Consultants, who offer guidance and provide confidence throughout each stage of the process. Our team can undertake Passivhaus Planning Package (PHPP) calculations to assess compliance and can also produce bespoke Psi-value Calculations to ensure that thermal bridging is minimised.
