South Surrey Passive House Duplex, Canada

Innovative Prefab Passive House building - www.markendc.com

The clients desire to have three generations live under one roof reduces their ecological footprint as a family such as this would normally be living in separate houses.

Completed in 2013, the design of this innovative Prefab Passive House building in South Surrey began in summer of 2012. Through close dialogue and interaction with the clients to incorporate their wish list items, the building developed through the later months of the year to a completed design and building permit ready project by Christmas.



The clients desire to have three generations live under one roof reduces their ecological footprint as a family such as this would normally be living in separate houses. There are a lot tangible and maybe not so tangible benefits to this. Less car journeys for the grandparents and grandchildren to meet and play/babysit, social benefit of having family close by to provide care saving health care costs/demand- especially with the generation that are advancing in age, to name but a few. Currently, the BC Hydro bill comes in ad $60.-/mo for the whole house and the families did not have to turn on the heat once in the 1,5 years living in their Passive House.
