Delivering net-zero through Passivhaus: Scale-up projects

Last Thursday, COP26 focused on solutions to cut carbon from our built environment. Passivhaus is one of the best solutions available now and we have an exciting array of confirmed speakers lined up to showcase Passivhaus new-build and retrofit large-scale projects. Hear from leading Passivhaus practitioners on how to deliver different project types, drilling down into construction innovations, key insights and lessons learned.



Session 1 will focus on new builds - from towering student accommodation to a maritime visitors centre. Learn from pioneering Passivhaus projects that are navigating technical & practical challenges.

In Session 2, discover Passivhaus retrofit projects. Alongside the design and delivery details of The Entopia Building, explore net-zero strategies inspired by EnerPHit from Renfrewshire Council & Edinburgh City Council, to be applied across entire estates.

Don't miss the chance to learn more about projects that will undoubtedly shape the future of Passivhaus in the UK as we transition to net-zero. See below for more details.
