Andrew Yeats from Eco Arc Passive House Architects has assisted Eden Insulation in making a short video which illustrates how the project team erected the structural timber frame of the 4 bedroom Kendal Passive House in one 8 hour day.
This included putting up all the 300mm deep I beam pre insulated cellulose external walls, intermediate floor and roof to create a wind and watertight shell in one day. A further two days where required to install all the triple glazed windows and doors and install the required air tightness tapes.
This fine-tuned prototype build system is now a tried and tested method, employed by Eco Arc Architects, Eden Insulation and Ecological Building Systems is to deliver the exacting Passive House Standards of Quality Assurance.
The Kendal Passive house as shown in the video achieved an air tightness test result of 0.11 ACH which is the lowest ever recorded figure achieved by Passive House airtightness expert Paul Jennings of Aldus.
The video was filmed by Eden Lighthouse & co funded by Eden Insulation and Ecological Building Systems with technical narration information by project Architect:
