Following initial design by Graham Drummond of Passivhaus Associates and his son-in-law Architect Stephen McPhail, we were involved in preparing the Building Warrant and construction stage drawings and specifications for Graham’s own house in Fife. It will be home to Graham, wife Fiona and their disabled adult son Robbie. The mainly single level home features some specialised aspects for Robbie who has Dravet Syndrome, a catastrophic neurological condition.

We worked closely with Graham to complete the details for what will be an exceptionally high performing Passivhaus, building on the success sand lessons learnt of their certified passivhaus at Craigrothie, Graham and JGA Director Chris Morgan have developed an ultra energy efficient house with lots of natural light and a healthy specification internally.

Essentially a self build project with the main contractor for the project, Geum Ltd, owned by clients Graham & Fiona to ensure quality and financial control of all aspects of the build.
