Passivhaus is the world’s leading standard in energy efficient construction. It is an internationally recognised standard which can be applied to different building types and is increasingly being asked for by progressive planning policies.

A Passivhaus building is one in which a comfortable interior climate can be maintained throughout the year without using active heating or cooling systems. Buildings using Passivhaus techniques can save up to 90% of standard energy demand.

SRE provides specialist Passivhaus advice and certification for clients seeking to develop buildings with exemplar levels of energy performance. With a qualified Passivhaus designer within the SRE team, this specialist approach can be combined with other project requirements including Energy Statements and other assessment methodologies such as BREEAM.
