Agar grove

Our role

Passivhaus Certification


The project:

~350 dwellings over a number of blocks.

Initially 35 flats in a single block.


Our focus:

The larger site at Agar poses many different problems in comparison to low rise dwellings, for example the mechanical services design becomes critical and thermal bridging can be much more significant.


As well as certifying this project we have provided training for the design teams, given initial advice on buildability and thermal performance, and are looking forward to significant site presence.
