Passiv Haus:

Sara became interested in the energy standard, Passivhaus, started in Germany by Wolfgang Feist to promote the concept of housing without heating (or cooling) by optimising the buildings fabric and using a heat recovery ventilation system. This standard is becoming increasingly popular in this country for self-builders and housing associations are also moving in this direction. Sara is now a Certified Passiv Haus Designer after passing this German exam at BRE through the Passiv Haus Designer course and is able to model buildings using the Passiv Haus Planning Package software. If you are interested in building a new dwelling to this standard or to refurbish an existing dwelling along these principles, please contact us to discuss your project.
