Time To Get Active On Passive

Larch House fetaured in Showhouse magazine, January 2011.

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:

low carbon passivhaus homes

On Wednesday this week, I travelled to beautiful Snowdonia in North Wales to present ideas to a group of housing associations and other interested parties including planners, developers and contractors. It’s once again exciting to connect with a community that strongly recognises the opportunity, as well as the need, to convert existing and build new extremely low-energy, warm and comfortable passivhaus homes using local resources. We all shared a real passion for holistic thinking, protection of this beautiful environment and sensitive and sustainable use of local resources.

Assisted self-build Passivhaus

Working with the QS of the Ebbw Vale prototype Passivhaus homes in Wales, bere:architects and Richard Whidborne have put together a package of materials and suppliers that could help a self builder to construct a super low energy Passivhaus for under £100,000*. All specialist skills and services, including specialist construction of the timber frame, installation of the plumbing, solar hot water, heat recovery and the electrics are accounted for.

Justin Bere attended the University of the West of England in Bristol with assistant Nick Newman to give a talk about the Zero Carbon Welsh PassivHaus at Ebbw Vale (15 Oct 2010). The lecture formed part of the Ibstock Archaos series and was open to students, industry professionals and the general public.

Thanks very much. It’s my great pleasure to be here this evening at the first UK Passivhaus conference. And to meet people united by a passion for improving the energy efficiency of our buildings.

It is a passion that serves a very real purpose. A quarter of UK emissions come from the home. Another 15% comes from public and commercial buildings.
