14 Month Project
Passivhaus standard
3 floor, 3 bedroom, timber framed new build

our role

This is one of our current projects and we are once again working with Mawson Kerr to build our second certified Passivhaus. This build is an impressive 300 square meters and will be a three-bedroom family home spanning three levels. It will be a timber-frame building with exterior brick and timber cladding. It features an MVHR system with air source heat pump and PV panels.

Due to site access, there was no way a prefabricated timber frame could be delivered or unloaded onsite with a crane. The only solution here has been to consult with Daniel Dyer of Mawson Kerr to design a timber frame that can be stick built onsite with materials that can be successfully delivered and that will also produce the desired u-values and eventual air tightness needed. We are just at the beginning of this process and should be building this frame over the winter. Keep posted for more updates.
