Its official, Crossway is a certified PASSIVHAUS !!!!
We recently decided to get Crossway retrospectively examined, scrutinised & tested through PHPP to see if our house could be certified as one of only a small handful of certified PassivHaus buildings in the UK. I’m chuffed to say that it did pass ! Even more rewarding for me is that it passed without being designed using PHPP software. This demonstrates to me that you can design buildings that are joyous and inspiring as pieces of architecture without the stiff & sterile straight jacket of technical software. It goes to show that there is another way - using experience and collaboration can and has achieved the same results - a PassivHaus certificate (for what it’s worth !)
