This social housing retrofit by bere:architects, will be Enerphit passivhaus making use of external insulation, new windows, and heat recovery ventilation to ensure fresh air at the same time as very low heat loss. Specific heat energy requirements will be reduced by 95%, while alsominimizing primary energy use. The existing property has an abnormally high energy demand asassessed using the Passivhaus Planning Package (PHPP). These large values are in part due to a complete absence of loft insulation. The main objectives of the project are to show that deepenergy cuts are possible with social housing stock. As UK exposure to and experience of Passivhaus grows, we aim to show that improved thermal comfort, reduced energy bills and lower CO2 emissions are possible for millions of people in existing houses.
