The cornerstone of the Trafalgar Way Project is the Passivhaus Standard, an internationally recognised building standard that sets stringent requirements for energy efficiency and minimal operational carbon, whilst delivering high quality occupant comfort.
From meticulously detailed design and analysis through to methodical and diligent quality assurance during construction, the buildings within this development achieve remarkable energy performance. The design and analysis approach at the heart of the Passivhaus Standard considers energy usage right down to the small appliance, enabling an accurate forecast of the performance of the buildings.
The Passivhaus design philosophy achieves high performance through demanding requirements for airtightness and thermal insulation; minimising and controlling thermal bridging; utilising ventilation systems with heat recovery; and optimising solar gains through the windows.
