Goldsmith Street under construction Mikhail Riches

Norwich City Council's Goldsmith Street development of 60 flats and 45 houses is aiming to become the UK's largest certified Passivhaus scheme. 

Designed by Mikhail Riches, following an international RIBA competition, the project is now under construction with Passivhaus specialists R G Carter as main contractor, PHT member Cygnum supplying the timber frame, and PHT Patron member WARM acting as Passivhaus consultants.

The Green Register in partnership with Mikhail Riches invite you on a site visit, including a presentation with Q&A from the team and a tour of the dwellings under construction. Delegates will be shown houses at all stages of development, demonstrating how Passivhaus principles are incorporated from ground works through to practical completion.

About the visit

There will be a joint presentation from architects Mikhail Riches; Associate James Turner and Project Architect Henry Wootton, with the client Andrew Turnbull of Norwich City Council and Geoff Hales Contracts Manager for the main contractor RG Carter. Hannah Jones of M&E consultants Greengauge and Caroline Martin of Passivhaus consultants and PHT member WARM will also be on hand to answer any questions.

The presentation of around 45 minutes including Q&A will be followed by a tour of the project lasting 1 hr including time for questions.
