Better Heat Retention
Building with thicker walls means that Passive Houses retain heat a lot better.
Quieter Living Spaces
A focus on insulation means that living spaces in Passive Houses are much quieter.
Higher Air Quality
Ventillation systems mean that Passive Houses have better air quality.
Lower Energy Consumption
Some Passive Houses boast an up to 90% reduction in energy required to run.
Long-term Cost Savings
Lower energy requirements means lower ongoing costs for heating and cooling.
Rigorous Building Standards
A certified Passive House goes over-and-above current building standards.
Better for the Environment
Energy efficient homes are better for the environment.
Certified Passive Houses focus on less dependence on energy powered by fossil fuels, more use of renewable energy sources like solar, and a more durable construction (which often leads to less repairs in the long run).
The Future of Building
In a world where our impact on the climate is undeniable, more and more people are looking for ways to live more sustainably.
Certified Passive Houses focus on reducing energy consumption and utilising renewable resources, where possible, to create a comfortable and envrionmentally responsible home.

High Performance - SIP Construction
Lincoln Tai Tapu Road
We engaged with Liam to renovate our 1930’s bungalow.
There were a number of factors which wouldn’t have made this an easy project for any builder, but Liam was elemental in helping us achieve what we had in mind.
A large part of the work also required Liam to liaise directly with an architect and engineer to get sign off on work that was required to meet strict standards – both of which commented on the quality of his work and his responsiveness throughout the process.
Whether you've already got plans and just need a certified builder, or you're right at the very beginning, get in touch to book a consultation with us, to discuss how we can help you get into your next Passive House.
