Our first blog will cover the construction of a house in Leeds using wide cavity wall construction and aiming for Passivhaus certification. This building is also using the AECB water standard for the hot water system design.
Wide cavity wall construction has now been used on a number of houses built to the Passivhaus standard in the UK, including:
- Denby Dale Passivhaus by the Green Building Company
- Golcar Passivhaus by the Green Building Company
- Steel Farm by Mark Siddall, LEAP, J.D. Joinery and Building
Both the Green Building Company and Mark Siddall have been very generous in sharing the design and construction lessons learned from these projects and this knowledge has been integrated into the design by our architect for this project Eric Parks.
