Eco-Build Reviews


Eco-Build 2015

Eco-build this year brought together a sustainable design, construction and energy marketplace for new build, refurb commercial and domestic buildings.

Our team visited this year’s Ecobuild on 3rd March, at the ExCel exhibition centre in London’s Docklands.

The topic “Passivhaus: A model for designing for local climate differences as well as for anticipated climate change?” certainly caught our attention on the day.

Passivhaus buildings provide a high level of occupant comfort while using very little energy for heating and cooling. They achieve a 75% reduction in space heating requirements, compared to standard practice for UK new build.

Our project Oyster Reach, Whitstable was built to Passivhaus standards which achieved AA’s on its SAP calcs, EPC’s of 94 and TER’s of £135 per year; all without compromise to the design and integrity of the development.
