THE BENEFITS OF LIVING OR WORKING IN A ‘PASSIVE HOUSE’ BUILDING
I have completed the studies to become a ‘Passive House designer’ & would enjoy the opportunity to discuss how this systematic approach could be applied to your project. Despite the name, it is a system that is suited to residential & commercial buildings. The ‘Passive House’ system of building results in buildings that are healthy- even near main roads, comfortable- even in extreme hot & cold climates & because it will significantly reduce your carbon footprint- is environmentally responsible.
Existing Building practices in Australia, combined with the push to increase insulation without understanding building science, in the past few years, has resulted in more & more buildings with condensation & mould problems. This has lead to a significant increase in toxic interior environments. Passive House avoids these potential problems.
I can demonstrate how this building methodology has the ability to save you money, when implemented at the start of a project. It is also great for re-sale marketability as people begin to discover the huge benefits of living or working within a Passive house building.
