Buckinghamshire

Nearing completion - this carefully crafted Passivhaus in Buckinghamshire was recently described by a visitor as having a 'Donald Judd clarity of construction'. The building derives most of its external heat gains from a glazed wall facing North West over open countryside.

The timber framed superstructure arrived this week for our Passive House in Buckinghamshire and was erected and made water-tight in 24hrs

On time, the contractor is now waiting for the arrival of the timber frame that will envelope the building and the windows that will make it air-tight. The installation of the two packages is being coordinated so that they share a crane.

The fair-faced concrete lower floor of this Passive House on a Buckinghamshire hillside is nearing completion. The timber framed superstructure is due for delivery and erection towards the end of September and will be watertight and draught free a couple of weeks later.

Our new Passive House (or Passivhaus) near Princes Risborough is now on site. The tall glass windows all face North West, and will demonstrate that, by careful calculation, it's possible to build a very low energy Passive House without lots of south facing glass.
