We are four couples building in Dunblane, Central Scotland.
With a keen interest in sustainability, our aim was to build to Passivhaus standards.
The cost of the build has unfortunately made this impossible. However, we are really, really close to it.
Scottish Building Standards state that
It is recommended that buildings be designed to 10 m3/m2.h @ 50 Pa or better though an infiltration rate of 7 m3/m2.h @ 50 Pa is used for the TER calculation.
We are expecting our air-tightness tests to achieve a rating of around 1 m3/m2.h.
Our architect is Chris Morgan of Locate Architects.
