Passive House for Building Owners

The long-term success of a building owner hinges on creating an optimal living or working environment. It all starts with the building itself.

An exceptional building can alleviate many of the problems that plague building owners

The cost of operating a building will remain fixed regardless if it is full or vacant. To protect the profitability of your building and ensure a stable income over time, it is important to understand the needs of its occupants and offer an environment that will appeal to them. Whether your building serves a residential or commercial purpose, optimizing occupant comfort, well-being, and health can help you maximize your success.  

Passive House offers a solution to fit your needs

For business operations, shifting the focus towards health and well-being means retaining quality staff, reducing absences due to illness, and improving productivity. Similarly, for residential apartment owners, providing a compelling living environment can attract reliable tenants and minimize turnover, yielding a more stable income over time through increased rent and reduced rent arrears. From enhanced business operations to tenant retention – we help you reduce operational costs and ensure a stable income to extract optimized value from your building.

Superior ventilation for better health and protection against COVID

Resilient against unpredictable events, such as viral outbreaks, severe weather, and power outages, a Passive House building will remain operational even under extreme circumstances. Attract and retain the right staff and tenants by putting health and safety first.

How we can help

We can step in to assist at any stage of your Passive House journey.

Build the Team

The people make the project – the right team should possess the experience, competence, and commitment to realize the full potential of your project and ensure its efficient, cost-effective delivery.

Optimize the Design

Starting down the right path is crucial if the project is going to be financially feasible. We review your concept design and provide critical feedback that simplifies the project, reduces risk, and increases profitability.

Refine the Design

As the design evolves, we identify a curated set of products and systems that meet the various energy, architectural, code specifications and work closely with the construction manager to manage costs. All of the nice-to-haves are isolated from the essential features to keep the project within budget.

Verify the Results

Once the building's occupied, we complete the Passive House certification process and support ongoing performance monitoring to ensure the Passive House promise is delivered.

Ensure the Build

As the build proceeds, we're with you every step of the way. We cast a critical eye on the fine details to ensure the final quality of your build meets expectations.  

Appraise the Options

Passive House goes beyond the conventional. We identify, explore, and assess design options appropriate to the project. We then combine technical and financial data to determine the best option to pursue.
