Camden Passivhaus - FINAL REPORT - Technology Strategy Board funded research

The Camden Passivhaus, London's first Passive House, by bere:architects

This report is the result of two years 'Phase 2' in-depth monitoring of the performance of the Camden Passivhaus. This is important research because it tests one of the UK's first Passive House projects, completed in 2010. It contains the full and detailed findings of the research team which looked at all aspects of the building, including comfort, performance and health. The research was led by bere:architects who employed Professor Dr Ian Ridley, formerly of University College London, now of RMIT Australia, to provide the independent technical evaluation of the building performance. The entire research and peer review team is credited at the front of the report.

The research project was made possible by funding from the Technology Strategy Board's Building Performance Evaluation (BPE) competition. The project methods and outputs were rigorously assessed at every stage by two leading building performance experts employed by the Technology Strategy Board; a Project Officer and a Project Evaluator.

The Technology Strategy Board praised the research project execution, stating: "The project was carried out efficiently and according to Plan.  There was some delay in completing the Final Report because of resource limitations.  This was one of the lowest cost projects and represents very good value for the TSB."

The appendices to the report have not been uploaded at this stage due to the confidentiality implications of publishing the appendices in an entirely open forum. However the main report contains an immense amount of detail that we hope will be of interest to academics, professionals, policy makers and members of the public who may be considering whether to commission a Passive House.
