Passivhaus Workshop in Partnership with the Passivhaus Trust

Friday 21st - Saturday 22nd May 2021

 

The Passivhaus standard is designed to deliver comfort, quality and lower running costs, in any type of building. We spend most of our time indoors, so buildings play an important part in our health and wellbeing.

The most successful and cost-effective way of achieving Passivhaus is by incorporating the standard before your designs are complete. It’s also useful if the Passivhaus elements are included in your planning application.

Take advantage of this free workshop and ensure you have the right team behind you for your Passivhaus home.

This workshop will offer a full timetable of talks & webinars, question time sessions and live guided tours from the NSBRC across various platforms.

Workshop Dates

Friday 21st - Saturday 22nd May 2021*

*This event will be held at The National Self Build & Renovation Centre as a 'hybrid' event. We will be live streaming the presentations on Zoom if you are unable to attend the event.
