Compliance, EnerPHit Retrofit, Hab-Lab, Passivhaus

Award-winning investigation into eliminating fuel poverty for residents of sandstone tenements in Glasgow’s east end. We worked with Milnbank Housing Association and Glasgow School of Art to examine the feasibility of retrofitting traditional tenements to Passivhaus level and illustrated the technical constraints, proposed solutions and costs. We calculated three levels of energy efficiency standard up to Passivhaus EnerPHit standard, conducting thermal imaging, airtightness testing and using Passivhaus software to see where the greatest energy savings could be made.
