Working across the globe, we believe in better buildings that provide the highest levels of comfort, health and efficiency.
A tried and tested construction concept with nearly 30 years of proven delivery, Passivhaus can be applied to any building type. Typically delivering up to 90% reductions in energy consumption while also optimising comfort, the suite of measures that make up the Passivhaus standard are a logical solution. Grün is an experienced partner in delivering design and certification to Passivhaus.
Passivhaus is widley considered to set the international best practice benchmark for low energy passive building design. Certification will place the project amongst the most efficient in the country, and will ensure that the occupants experience a truly comfortable and healthy space. From the Passive House base, it is also possible for the project to achieve Energy Zero, Carbon Neutral or even positive operation. Official Certification of the building is not required, but provides a level of quality control and marketability. While there is no doubt that the design of the project strives to achieve the standard, Certification will ensure that the construction is verified and the project is recognised as a leading example of efficient building practices.
