Industry Day is focused on creating awareness for new dynamic approaches, including the Passive House standard in order to meet the new NZEB targets and to ensure a high quality housing stock is
delivered which creates long term value and a sustainable solution to the current housing crisis.
Our new development in Silken Park, Citywest, is setting the standard for airtightness. Yesterday the team recorded a result of 0.16 ACH50 which far exceeds the minimum requirement of 0.6 ACH50 airtightness in Passive House construction.
This case study highlights our attention to detail and commitment to a better built home. Airtight, thermal bridging and external wall insulation techniques applied to Phase 2 of Silken Park, completed earlier this year, led to our commitment to go a step further and build a fully certified Passive House for Phase 3 which is due to launch in January 2017.
