Online Tour: Zetland Passive House Project
Time & Location
About the event
Ecospheric is pleased to offer our first online tour of the Zetland Passive House project as part of the International Passive House Open Days (November 5-7).
The Zetland Passive House project is the UK's first certified EnerPHit Plus building. Originally built in 1894, this Passivhaus project is intended to provide a blueprint for retrofitting the UK's 8 million pre 1930’s, hard to treat homes. Using natural, breathable materials and reusing all the recoverable, original fabric, the project is a pioneering example of sustainable low carbon retrofit.
These semi-detached townhouses achieved a 95% reduction in space heating demand and a 7-fold reduction in carbon emissions. These dwellings feature an 11kW PV system powering an AI driven hot water tank and a 2kw post heater piggybacking on the MVHR system, removing the need for a traditional central heating system. The Zetland Passive House project was recently awarded the "Living Comfort Award" at the International Passive House Awards.
This online tour of the property will be led by Tiffany Chong of Ecospheric. Participants will step inside the property through a 3D virtual tour. Tiffany will explain the project aims, products and technologies used, and how the property was transformed from a shared rental property to the country's greenest Victorian homes.
This free webinar will be hosted on Google Meet. After registering, you will be emailed a link to access the event.
