Exploring Current Thinking on Passivhaus

Passivhaus is largely accepted by architects as an effective means of drastically reducing emissions in a range of building types, and therefore as an important weapon in the battle to reach the Government’s net zero target by 2050. But what about the wider supply chain, and clients? What accounts for the relatively poor takeup of Passivhaus in the UK compared with other countries, and what are the remaining stigmas and misconceptions around Passivhaus that need to be addressed?

Our survey of architects reveals designers’ real-world experiences of Passivhaus design, how it fits within the current procurement agenda, and what the remaining challenges are to the wider takeup hoped for by many. The White Paper is therefore essential reading for anyone interested in designers’ current perceptions on Passivhaus in the UK.
