Passivhaus projects shortlisted for RIBA Regional Awards 2018

RIBA’s annual regional awards shortlists have just been announced, and among the finalists are three Passivhaus projects.


The RIBA East shortlist of 19 projects includes The Deerings, a detached Passivhaus in Harpenden, Hertfordshire. It’s a joint project by PHT member Gresford Architects, who developed the scheme through design and construction, and Nicolas Tye Architects, who prepared initial plans and secured planning consent.

An informal space for students and staff, it was certified in May last year. PHT member CBG Consultants were the Passivhaus and M&E consultants on the project.
