Super-Insulated Airtight Passive House Homes

Super-Insulated Airtight Passive House Homes

The fourth episode of the Building Performance Interactive will focus on super-insulated airtight timber frame construction to accelerate strategic design and development of Passive House projects.

Expertise, fast building techniques, along with high-quality and energy saving materials are required in assuring high-performance. To illustrate this point, we will visit the construction site of a new build Passive House in the UK to speak with Adrian Williamson and Lee Broomhall involved in the process.

Adrian Williamson - Director and Chartered Architectural Technologist at WM Design & Architecture will exemplify how the adoption of intelligent strategic design of timber frame construction can maximise energy savings through its structural components, while meeting current building standards.

Lee Broomhall - Sales Manager at MBC Timber Frame will talk about the PH standards, using passive timber frame wall and foundation systems, advanced manufacturing techniques that create a continuously insulated thermal envelope, resulting in superior airtightness, cold bridge-free house.

Adoption of latest technologies and modern timber frame construction methods can help achieve significant energy savings, up to 90%, and deliver extremely low U-Value, by integrating best practices manufacturing processes.


The Building Performance Interactive (BPI) - Design it. Shape it. Build it. approaches the need for professional hands-on training, and focuses on projects from Ireland, the UK, and Europe. It discusses building performance, the nZEB and Passive House standards, design solutions and techniques, sustainable building materials, and lessons learned that can help accelerate low-carbon construction to a bigger scale.

The 8-part monthly miniseries was developed by Passive House Accelerator in collaboration with Partel and brings together a line-up of fantastic co-hosts, speakers, and experts from across the green building industry.
