UK Passivhaus Open Days 2013

Date: 8 - 10 November 2013 Time: N/A
Location: All over the UK Cost: FREE

Over the last 20 years, Passivhaus has become synonymous with quality, comfort and energy requirements low enough to be feasibly and sustainably covered with renewables. From 8 - 10 November 2013, owners and residents of Passivhaus buildings will be able to show members of the public just that by opening their homes and offices for the 10th annual International Passive House Days.

Visit Passivhaus buildings across the UK

At the UK Passivhaus Open Days, you will have the opportunity to experience the comforts of the Passivhaus standard first hand and learn more about it. A range of projects will be open to the public including private houses, social housing, community buildings, office buildings and refurbished properties. The buildings have been designed by different architects and built using various construction methods.
