Camden Passivhaus

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

The Technology Strategy Board funded FINAL REPORT of the Camden Passivhaus has now been published. The report is the result of two years 'Phase 2' in-depth monitoring of the performance of the Camden Passivhaus.

Dr Ian Ridley's research paper published in collaboration with the bere:architects technical team: 'The Monitored Performance of the first new London dwelling certified to the Passive House standard' will be published in 'Energy and Buildings'.

Here is an extract from Dr Ridley's paper: 

bere:architects would like to thank Laura Mark, AJ sustainability intern, for her wonderful review of the recent event at the Camden Passivhaus.

The event was organised by the Good Homes Alliance with funding from the Technology Strategy Board as part of their Building Performance Evaluation programme.

Camden Passivhaus Monitoring

It has just been announced that two more of bere:architects’ projects have been awarded funding to undergo two years of research and monitoring as part of the Technology Strategy Board’s Building Performance Evaluation programme.

Passivhaus buildings are comfortable and require little maintenance, but they do have some important features which are different to many existing buildings. As with any other building type, the design features must be fully understood by the occupants to ensure they are experiencing the most comfortable and healthy internal environments, using the minimum amount of energy. To achieve this it is vital that the architects and services engineers pass on the knowledge that they have gained during the design and construction period to the end user.

Camden Council have produced a ground-breaking low carbon building section of their official website. This helps interested people to learn about low-carbon buildings in their community and may be a good model for other councils to copy.

Our Camden Passivhaus has just been included on the website: http://www.camden.gov.uk/ccm/content/environment/energy/low-carbon-build...
