The Passivhoos KTP is a 3-year project, funded by Innovate UK through the Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme. Passivhoos is a range of social housing types that meet the international Passivhaus standards, Housing for Varying Needs and
Scottish Government budget benchmarks. It has been developed and will be delivered by John Gilbert Architects, Stewart & Shields contractors and Design Engineering Workshop for Scottish housing providers and is available in a variety of configurations to suit many different sites. This project aims to bring the long-term benefits of Passivhaus construction to Scottish social housing, encourage the take up of genuinely low-energy homes and eliminate fuel poverty. Passivhaus buildings provide a high level of occupant comfort
while using very little energy for heating and cooling. Passivhaus homes are built with meticulous attention to detail, rigorous design and construction according to
principles developed by the Passivhaus Institute in Germany and can be certified through an exacting quality assurance process.
