From marginal to mainstream: can Passivhaus construction become the new norm?

Join Architecture Today for a free online webinar which delves into the key opportunities and challenges of embedding Passivhaus into mainstream architectural projects. Discover why more and more councils are building to Passivhaus standard across the UK, and how this shift has also influenced uptake of Passivhaus within the private sector.

Hear from PHT Patron Architype about their experience of delivering Passivhaus schools, how PHT members Max Fordham approached the design of the 2021 UK Passivhaus Awards people's choice winner Cranmer Road, and more.

The webinar will explore the key topics including:

  • Role of the Passivhaus Planning Package (PHPP) in accurate design modelling and closing the performance gap.

  • 5 principles of Passivhaus design

  • Passivhaus as an quality assured methodology

  • Energy use and carbon emissions

  • Occupant comfort and health

  • Taking a proactive approach to education, communication, training, user guides and maintenance regimes to get the best results.

  • Adopting a collaborative contractual and procurement culture

  • Effective strategies for post-occupancy evaluation and analysing feedback to inform future design decisions

  • Counting the cost: how can we build to passivhaus principles at no extra cost?
