Four Oaks, a new sustainable home in Nailsea, Bristol
The first Passivhaus sustainable home built in North Somerset. Timber frame construction with well insulated walls and roof achieve a high performance thermal value of at least 0.12 W/m2K. Air tightness is no greater than 0.6 air changes / hr @ n50. Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery [MVHR] provides fresh air, climate control and environmental comfort and together with PV panels low energy usage is achieved without the need for heating. It was a challenge managing the rigorous construction as Passivhaus Certification requires meticulous attention to detail and air tight construction. Featured on the Passivhaus Trust web site. Regional Finalist for Building Excellence Design Award. Specialist Passivhaus consultant: Piers Sadler.
