What's on at UKPHC16

The spotlight will be on a number of pioneering large-scale Passivhaus case studies, both in the UK and abroad, such as Heidelberg Bahnstadt – ‘the largest Passivhaus community in the world’.

This year we will also be running advanced level ‘Mini-Masterclass’ sessions alongside the main conference programme, offering the chance for conference delegates to experience detailed ‘hands-on’ training from leading practitioners in the industry.




Large-scale case studies

Cedar Court & Cedar Street

Collective Architecture has developed proposals for the refurbishment of three 1960s blocks of flats to EnerPHit standards. A pioneering ventilation system called Fresh-R by Vaventis will be used to provide fresh, clean air into the building. The system utilises an innovative copper wire configuration which acts at both a heat exchanger and a filter, and can be simply cleaned with water, reducing the need for replacement filters.


Heidelberg Bahnstadt - 'Delivering on cost and quality'

Our keynote speaker Ralf Bernich will describe Heidelberg Bahnstadt, dubbed 'the largest Passivhaus community in the world' with just under 2,000 apartments completed and all non-domestic buildings built to Passivhaus standards.


Leicester Medical Centre

The project team from Leicester Medical Centre, 'the largest certified Passivhaus building in the UK', will discuss the ongoing monitoring studies that are being carried out on the pioneering project.



This year we will be running condensed versions of our popular 'Masterclass' series. These sessions will be delivered by the leading industry experts and will get into the detail of six key elements of a Passivhaus project.

Building fabric

Installation of insulation and airtightness


Cost optimisation and buildability
