As part of London Climate Action Week, sign up for a unique opportunity to visit Agar Grove estate regeneration, the project currently on target to become the UK’s largest residential Passivhaus development. This is a great chance to get up close and personal with a trail-blazing scheme tackling carbon emissions, fuel poverty, and residents health.

Learn directly from those most closely involved in the project including the client, Camden City Council, and understand what it takes to develop a large-scale Passivhaus scheme and the benefits it can bring.

The tour will take place outside the building and offers a rare opportunity to view Passivhaus elements with one phase complete, and another nearby under construction.

  • Gain an overview of Passivhaus in the UK
  • Hear why Camden Council chose to adopt the standard
