Having recently completed our first Passivhaus scheme for both Crawley Borough Council and ourselves, we are pleased to have again been appointed by them for the construction of four houses and two flats to Passivhaus standard.
Passivhaus development systems ensure that buildings are as energy efficient as possible. The buildings have high insulation levels, high performance doors, windows and air tightness, which are so efficient that a central heating system is not required.
It exceeds the building regulation minimum standards with triple glazing, 300mm wall insulation and a ventilation system providing filtered pre-warmed air.
The low energy use of these Passivhaus homes aims to reduce fuel poverty by providing low bills for residents. The high construction standard quality of these dwellings will ensure durability and comfort for the future.
