Proven Benefits of passivhaus
Patrwm 21 architects, Architype have been designing Passivhaus schools since 2010, when the first Passivhaus schools in the UK were delivered.
Now on their 12th Passivhaus school project, they have diligently monitored the performance of their built schools; both energy in use and internal comfort; providing evidence on the financial and health benefits of Passivhaus.
The powerful results of the performance monitoring have inspired and supported the Passivhaus offer of Patrwm 21.
ENERGY IN USE
The thermal energy use in a typical Architype Passivhaus School compared to a typical UK school, a best practice school and the CIBSE TM46 benchmark. The Passivhaus school shows a 90% education in thermal energy use on the typical school built to UK building regulations.
SUPPORTING HEALTH + WELLBEING
PASSIVHAUS - A COMFORT STANDARD
By monitoring the temperature and carbon dioxide concentrations in classrooms, we can make some conclusions regarding the indoor air quality.
We have monitored a classroom inside a Passivhaus school, comparing it with a typical classroom in a conventional school built to building regulations.
