Continuing Phase II of the Passivhaus for Educational Buildings Campaign, we move our focus to university buildings. In case you missed it earlier this year in May – watch the procurement webinars for schools. We now look to the sizable, complex nature of Passivhaus higher education buildings exploring how we deliver successful Passivhaus university schemes. From strong briefs to assembling a skilled team and managing costs, this webinar has got you covered. Join us to discover more about existing Passivhaus University case studies and the importance of nailing the Passivhaus procurement process from the word go.

Revisit Phase I - exploring the importance of providing high-quality facilities to enhance student health and wellbeing whilst meeting climate goals & sustainability plans across campus estates through adopting Passivhaus.
