Northern Ireland Reports / Dungannon Passivhaus

This scheme of five homes timber framed homes is certified to Passivhaus Standard and achieved Level Four of The Code for Sustainable Homes. A mechanical ventilation with heat recovery system is used to meet the necessary ventilation levels in an efficient manner. This is the first phase of the study.
The client commented that the project needed more hand holding and attention to detail during construction than an ‘ordinary’ project to reduce thermal bridging. The building services approach to the dwellings has been considered as not appropriate for other dwellings of a similar specification. There are a number of lessons learned relating to the services approach and overall the services strategy was probably over complicated for this type of dwelling.
