Passive House: what’s it worth?

14 Mar 2019
Sustainability Summit

The tale of the journey of a single family home. We look at the evolution of a project over several years as it morphs from traditional passive solar towards certified passive house.

The benefits of passive house are well-known but the costs remain a mystery to many. This presentation looks at the design changes required to achieve the Passive House standard and their cost implications; is it all about the windows? What is the premium for air tightness? How do builders price risk?

A series of construction systems have been proposed, both on-site and off-site, with the project costed by multiple contractors using four different approaches over its evolution. We’ll analyse the differences and draw some conclusions about the current cost uplift for Passive House in the Sydney housing market.

What the Australian construction industry is saying about Sydney Build...

  • The Perfect Hire team and I thought the expo was fantastic. There was a great mix of people walking through looking at the exhibitions and we have gained a lot of quality leads due to this. We did not hesitate to sign up for the following year when approached to do so.
