We at Gale & Snowden Architects are pleased to have finished another Passivhaus 1st – the UK’s 1st Passivhaus Plus multi residential scheme – Seaton Beach apartment building. Designed to be high tech, eco friendly and following building biology design principles to promote health and well being. A rated EPC and classed as zero carbon.
There is also an array of PV panels on the roof so the building generates more energy than it uses. All of which have contributed in the building achieving the stringent Passivhaus Plus target, which no other apartment building in the UK has achieved. It also scored an A rating on it energy performance certificate.
The scheme is going through the final stages of PHI certification and is predicted to achieve:
Heating energy 8 kWh/m2.a
Primary Energy Renewable (PER) 40 kWh/m2.a
