Passivhaus in Scotland: Projects and Performance

Date: 25 June 2013 Time: 15.00 - 17.30
Location: University of Strathclyde, Glasgow Cost: £10 + VAT for PHT members; £30 + VAT for Non-members

Evidence from other countries demonstrates that the Passivhaus standard has the potential to deliver buildings that are low-energy. The UK was not an early adopter of Passivhaus but more recently a number of Passivhaus projects have been completed and there are many more under construction.

The challenges of Passivhaus construction and operation are increasingly relevant to those building to the current and projected future building regulations.

This event aims to explore Passivhaus for the UK and Scottish contexts through the experiences of project teams from three recent Scottish Passivhaus projects- Dormont Estate, Plummerswood: Low Energy Rural Dwelling and GALE Rural Community Centre, including performance data and POE feedback where available.
