Drymen social housing earns Passivhaus certification
December 20 2022
A social housing development billed as the first to be Passivhaus certified in Scotland, has been completed in Drymen, Stirlingshire.
Cruden Building with ECD Architects, acting on behalf of Hanover Scotland, have delivered 15 affordable homes fitted with mechanical heat recovery ventilation, triple glazing and solar panels.
Allan Callaghan, managing director of Cruden Building Scotland, commented: “As well as incorporating more efficient heating and energy systems, each home has been specially constructed using standard house kits to streamline the building process and reduce the need for additional materials.
"Bringing all of these solutions together as one, we’ve been able to maximise the positive impact that our new homes will have on the environment and surrounding communities, as well as providing tenants with a significant savings on energy bills.”
Slashing energy requirements for heating by as much as 90% it is claimed that the design will draw 70% less energy as a whole than an equivalent conventional building.
