We adhere to a rigorous Quality Assurance review process, providing future owners with assurance that the building was designed, built, and commissioned in accordance with the Passive House standard.

PASSIVE HOUSE THERMAL BRIDGING ANALYSIS
The Passive House standard recognizes the significant impact of thermal bridging on the space heating and cooling demands of a building, the durability of its envelope, and the health and comfort of its occupants. We provide thermal bridging modeling services and expert advice on how to design of thermally optimized building junctions or components and lower the risk of surface condensation.
