How to Build a Passivhaus

NBT Updates

A new guide entitled “How to Build a Passivhaus: Rules of Thumb” has been launched by UK passive house organisation, The Passivhaus trust.

The guide looks at the best methods and things to avoid when building passive houses. This is a useful guide for those new to Passivhaus or unsure on the principles and approaches taken. Launched at EcoBuild 2015, the guide is the third in series of documents published by The Passivhaus Trust, and contains diagrams and illustrations which will eventually be turned into a Passivehaus centric Wikipedia. This will help to provide a central resource for all Passivhaus information.

You can download the guide here: How to Build a Passivhaus: Rules of Thumb.
