Professionals interested in finding out more about using a Passivhaus methodology can benefit from a free passive house training event organised by NaCSBA member Beattie Passive.
The offsite modular specialist is holding two Passive Haus training events in October for free to support both individual self builders and those working in the industry wanting to find out more about building using passive methods on new build or retrofit projects.
The passive house events take place at Beattie Passive’s offsite factory in Norwich, and the events include a guided tour of the company’s 100,000 sq ft housebuilding factory.
The sessions offer attendees an insight into the principles of Passivhaus and how the standard can be applied to deliver energy efficient, net zero homes.
Attendance is free, but space is strictly limited.
NET ZERO FOR NEW BUILD AND RETROFIT
17th of October, 10am-12pm, at Beattie Passive’s factory at Unit 1, Carrow Works, Norwich, NR1 2DD
Designed for professionals, this event is ideal for local authorities, housing providers, policy makers, architects, builders, developers, and anyone else with an interest in building new net zero homes to Passivhaus standard (or retrofitting their existing housing stock to EnerPHit standard).
Self builders themselves will be interested in the first of the two events:

Ron Beattie, founder and managing director of Beattie Passive, said: “These events are part of our mission to promote sustainable building practices. Passivhaus has become synonymous with energy efficiency, and for good reason – a Passivhaus needs as little as 10% of the energy required by a conventional UK home – but we shouldn’t overlook the other benefits, such as thermal comfort, noise reduction and air quality.”
“Passivhaus is a panacea for many of the challenges facing the housebuilding sector – it can put an end to fuel poverty, raise living standards and eliminate damp and mould. At our net zero event, we’ll be paying particular attention to the environmental benefits of Passivhaus, and the role the standard plays in the delivery of net zero homes and retrofit projects.”
