We are delighted to announce that our Denby Dale Passivhaus project has been shortlisted for the Breakthrough Award category in the inaugural Greenbuild Awards.
The award citation says:
“Through its pioneering Denby Dale Passivhaus project (the UK’s first cavity wall Passivhaus), Green Building Store has developed a number of original design details with which the construction industry can adapt cavity wall construction to create Passivhaus and ultra low energy buildings. As well as demonstrating that cavity wall can offer a viable and valid option for Passivhaus construction in the UK, the project has also offered the construction industry useful technical detailing for radically improving the energy efficiency and airtightness of cavity wall construction, regardless of whether the project is aiming for the Passivhaus standard. Through its Passivhaus Diaries blog and freely available technical briefing and film, it has aimed to share its original improved design detailing for cavity wall to the wider public. ”
Green Building Store’s Bill Butcher, Project Leader at the Denby Dale Passivhaus will be representing the company at the Awards Ceremony on May 9th 2012 at Manchester Museum of Science & Industry.
Green Building Store Director Chris Herring will be speaking at Greenbuild Expo about the Denby Dale Passivhaus project at 10am on Thursday 10 May, sharing preliminary monitoring results from the project. Green Building Store will also be exhibiting at Greenbuild Expo on stand D13.
