CBG wins contract for the first non-residential Passivhaus project in Oxford
August 26th, 2015
CBG are pleased to announce that we have been appointed the Passivhaus and M&E consultants for a new Hub building for Kellogg College.
Working in collaboration with the architect Fielden Clegg Bradley Studio, this building is set to be the first non-domestic Passivhaus in Oxford and it’s a first for the University of Oxford.
As Passivhaus consultants, we are responsible for guiding the design team to ensure that the design meets the stringent Passivhaus requirements. This includes providing advice on construction detailing, product specification, insulation and services design.
The Passivhaus methodology has been proven to produce buildings with an exceptionally low energy demand and the highest standards of occupation comfort. The benefits of this approach are:
- Up to 90% savings on energy bills for the life of the building
- Excellent indoor air quality
- No summertime overheating
- Stable, comfortable temperatures with no cold draughts
- No condensation or mould problems
- A quiet building.
