“PassKlass” Passivhaus School Buildings
Manufacturer/Constructor – Richardson and Peat Ltd www.richardsonandpeat.com
Architects – Mark Ellerby Architects
Working in partnership with Richardson and Peat, a long established specialist timber frame manufacturer, and Mark Ellerby Architects, a long term AECB member, we developed a prefabricated modular building design to achieve Passivhaus standard.
Our initial aim was to produce a classroom to the highest energy efficiency standards at or below the typical cost of a conventional “Building Regulations” product that could also be delivered as a turnkey package.
PassKlass has attracted a lot of interest both for school and nursery provision but also for other uses as it can be adapted and customised to suit a wide range of situations.
