Ross,

My understanding is that Gokay Deveci has done two passivhaus?

Dave,

One of Gokay's units at Dunoon is to full Passive House standard and has PHI accreditation (this being the first and only Passive House thus far in Scotland and is a great achievement given that it is a social housing scheme). The other house at Midmar you refer to also by Gokay unfortunately isn’t to full Passive House standard. Both schemes also involved RTC timber (using PassiveWall and the Scottish Passive House Centre with whom we are also working).
