Project Development

A competition undertaken with funding from the Technology Strategy Board to sustainably extend and refurbish a concrete-framed home to Passivhaus principles. The project team implemented a solution to resolve the significant damp, mould and thermal comfort issues inherent in the original building. They installed innovative M&E and sustainable products, including a bespoke CIBSE award-winning MVHR system which utilised the sun’s energy through Nanogel technology to provide space heating. The performance of the building was monitored following completion and demonstrated an 87% reduction in CO² emissions. MA provided detailed procurement advice for completing the specialist elements of the project.
