Scottish Housing News: Glasgow’s first Passivhaus development for social rent opens

September 04, 2019


Glasgow just got its first Passive House affordable housing project, Cunningham House: a deft fusing of an historic church building with a modern 5‑story tower, developed by Shettleston Housing Association.

According to reporting by Scottish Housing News, Councillor Susan Aitken, leader of Glasgow City Council, said of the new Passive House project: “The extremely high construction standards will bring a host of benefits to residents, including lower fuel bills, improved air quality, a more comfortable living environment, and reduced C02 emissions. I have always said that climate and social justice should go hand in hand and by tackling climate change and fuel poverty Passivhaus does just that.”
