 Largest Passivhaus project in Scotland goes in for planning
Craigmillar Eco Housing Co-operative has submitted plans for the construction of ten Passivhaus homes at Greendykes Road, Edinburgh.

Designed by John Gilbert Architects to consume 90 per cent less energy than traditionally constructed homes the scheme is said to be the largest new build Passivhaus project in Scotland.

John Gilbert director Matt Bridgestock said: “We hope this model can inspire others and be rolled out across Scotland.”

Supported by the City of Edinburgh Council and PARC Craigmilar the project is based on a self-build and co-operative structure and will be completed by Christmas 2015.

David Narro Associates have been appointed as engineer for the build with Assemble CSB serving as project manager.
