Passivhaus Workshop

Join the NSBRC for a free online Passivhaus workshop over two consecutive days. Please note: this will be a hybrid event held at The National Self Build & Renovation Centre, with live online streaming of the presentations via Zoom for those who cannot attend.

As we are now spending more time in doors, the buildings we occupy play an important role in our health and wellbeing more than ever before. The Passivhaus standard is designed to deliver comfortable and high-quality living environments with lower running costs, in any type of building:

  • Good for comfort - comfortable temperatures are easily maintained all year round using minimal energy

  • Good for your health - constant clean fresh air

  • Good for your pocket - 90% reductions in energy needed for heating

  • Good for quality - a rigorous quality control process requires craftsmanship and buildings that are built with care

  • Good for your future - the Passivhaus seal of approval guarantees certainty of performance


The most successful and cost-effective way of achieving Passivhaus is incorporating the standard before your designs are complete and including your Passivhaus elements in your planning application.

This workshop will enable you to understand key Passivhaus principles, the application of Passivhaus to previous projects and to ensure you have the correct team behind you to develop your own Passivhaus home.
