PASSIVE HOUSE DESIGN AND CONSULTATION
The Business Case for building a Passive House
Climate Change has not only driven a moral imperative among business owners, homeowners, and Governments across the world. It has also stimulated a bottom-line approach to building.
This bottom-line approach has placed emphasis on social, economical, and environmental impacts buildings have on our communities today.
Passive House represents the lowest cost of ownership when one considers the costs of a mortgage, energy and maintenance costs.
"Passive house (German: Passivhaus) is a rigorous, voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, which reduces the buildings ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling."
