Associated Architects continued their active involvement with the all things Passivhaus with Associate Jon Chadwick speaking at the 2015 “Passive House Trust Conference” in London.
Jon spoke about the new Centre for Medicine at the University of Leicester which is set to become the largest non-domestic Passivhaus in the country. In addition to contract requirements for an EPC “A” rating and BREEAM “Excellent” the building will also target a DEC “A” rating during a three year â€˜soft landingsâ€™ programme of working with the client, building occupants and design team to minimise energy usage in operation.
