Passive House Premium

The Erne Campus will be the first Passive House Premium project of any kind in the UK, continuing our commitment towards sustainability, previously seen with the awarding winning CREST Centre, which opened in 2016 as the first Passivhaus Certified Educational building in the UK.

Bennett Freehill are the design team at the centre of this progress, and they are working towards making the Erne Campus a modern and class leading building, designed to reach both BREEAM Outstanding rating and the elusive and highly respected PassivHause Premium standard. Their role in the project is diverse, but their focus in particular has been on delivering the core concept and specification carried forward by the contractor team; reviewing contractor progress on site in order to monitor progress and quality; and acting act as Passivhouse Observer, monitoring the progress of the Passivhouse certification process.
